A 57-year-old woman has been taken to hospital after a crash on the A66, west of Penrith.
She was treated at the scene for head injuries at the scene. It's believed her injuries are not life threatening.
It happened today (28th November) around 11.30am.
Drivers are being asked their opinions of the A66 between Brough and Appleby. The eight mile stretch has been identified as one of the most dangerous in Cumbria and now engineers have held a public meeting to ask local people why it's so dangerous.
Jonathan Reade is from the Highways Agency and explains why the public's views are important:
A study will look at possible safety improvements to the A66 in Cumbria.
The Highways Agency is reviewing the section between Appleby and Brough after the latest statistics showed 31 accidents involving injuries over the past five years.
Local residents are being encouraged to attend a public event at Brough Memorial Hall to raise road safety concerns and make suggestions for improvements.
One of Cumbria's most dangerous stretches of road could be in line for safety improvements.
The Highways Agency is reviewing the A66 between Appleby-in-Westmorland and Brough, because there have been 31 accidents there in the past five years.

Local people and drivers are invited to a public meeting at Brough Memorial Hall on Thursday 13 November.
They'll be able to put questions to the Highways Agency, and suggest improvements they think should be made.
