A person has died after a collision last night on a B road near Penrith.
The accident happened at 11.30pm last night on the B5288 road between Greystoke and Motherby.
Police say a blue coloured BMW motor car was travelling towards Greystoke when it left the road and collided with the hedgerow and a dry stone wall.
They said the car contained four occupants and that a rear seat passenger sustained fatal injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.
Three other people were taken to the Cumberland Infirmary at Carlisle and treated for serious injuries, said police.
The road was closed for several hours whilst the emergency services dealt with the scene.
Police are appealing for any witnesses to the incident to contact Cumbria Police on 101 and ask to speak to PC Lisa Teasdale of the Northern Roads Policing Unit.
