Police, fire and ambulance attended the scene of the collision, which is believed to have occurred at some time on Saturday night into the early hours of Sunday morning.
A Cumbria Police spokesman said: “The car involved was a Vauxhall Corsa which had two occupants – David MacIntyre, 43 and Rebecca Macintyre, 37. Both Mr and Mrs MacIntyre lived in Alexandria, Dunbartonshire and died at the scene.
