Press Release 29/12/2017

At 18.00 on Friday 29th Dec., two BEEP Fund Doctors from Penrith & Keswick responded, at the request of the Northwest Ambulance Service, to a serious RTC on the A66 near Crackenthorpe, Penrith. The 20 year old driver of the car involved suffered extremely serious injuries & was trapped in his vehicle for approximately 30 minutes before being extricated by Cumbria FRS. He was immediately given intensive specialist medical treatment at the scene by the doctors & NWAS paramedics and also continuing this en route to the Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle. However, despite their best efforts he sadly passed away shortly after reaching hospital. Our thoughts & condolences are with his family at this very sad time.
