The family of a woman from West Cumbria who died following a collision on the M6, have paid tribute to her life.
Rachel Warwick, 50, from Whitehaven, died following a single-vehicle collision on the M6 southbound near Kendal, in the early hours of Sunday 13th January 2019.
The family are being supported by a Family liaison officer.
The incident, which occurred just after 5am, on Sunday, involved Mrs Warwick’s vehicle, a Nissan Almera, leaving the carriageway and colliding with a tree in the verge. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
The M6 Southbound carriageway was closed for 3 hours whilst a police investigation was carried out.
Police are appealing for any witnesses who were travelling south, along the M6 through Cumbria, between 4:30am and 5:10am, who may have seen a Nissan Almera or have dashcam footage to contact Cumbria Police on 101.
