Man dies following road collision
A motorist collapsed and died shortly after being involved in a three-car collision in the Lake District.

The man, who has not been named, at first reported suffering no serious injuries after the incident on the A591 near Ambleside on Friday afternoon.

But he collapsed shortly afterwards and later died in Westmoreland General Hospital in Kendal.

Cumbria Police said investigations were continuing and no-one else was injured in the incident.

The collision was not described as serious by officers.

A force spokesman said it was not yet clear whether the man was suffering from any other underlying medical conditions.
