THE family of a woman killed in a crash on the Cumbria A595 have paid tribute to an “active member” of her local community.
Margaret Bold, 76, of Mansion Gardens, Egremont died following a road traffic collision on Saturday.
In a statement, her family said: “Margaret was born in 1937 in Cheshire, where she lived most of her life. She married Alan in 1958 and they enjoyed life together until he sadly passed away in 1988.
“Margaret originally trained as a hairdresser, serving her apprenticeship at Owen Owen in Liverpool before opening her own salon in Halton Village.
“After starting a family, Margaret joined the Cheshire Building Society where she worked until retirement. Margaret moved to Cumbria in 2008 to be closer to family and very quickly adapted to life here, becoming an active member of the local church, Mother's Union, Women's Institute and flower club. Margaret is survived by her two sons and their families who will sadly miss her.”
Police were called at 9.36am to a serious road traffic collision on the A595 at Bigrigg between a Ford Ka and a Peugeot 508.
Mrs Bold was driving the Ford Ka at the time of the collision.
The Ford Ka had a passenger, an 86 year old woman from Egremont who was taken to the Royal Victoria Infirmary at Newcastle by Air Ambulance. She is in a critical but stable condition.
The other vehicle involved was a Peugeot 508, driven by a 40-year-old man from Whitehaven. He has been taken to West Cumberland Hospital to be checked over.
Police appeal for any witnesses to get in contact with the Roads Policing Unit at Cumbria Police on 101.
