police-rtc-night[F]our young men have been seriously injured in a two-vehicle head on-crash on small country lane between Armathwaite and Carlisle.

At 8:11pm on Saturday 13 May three fire engines attended a road traffic collision on Park Road, Armathwaite, Carlisle.

All were treated at the scene by crews from NWAS and two BEEP Fund Doctors attended from Penrith providing an extra level of medical interventions to some of the casualties; both Doctors accompanied patients in the ambulances to Carlisle.

A spokesman for Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service said: “Firefighters used specialist equipment to extricate one man before handing him over to the care of awaiting ambulance staff.
