Tributes are paid to Whitehaven woman who died following M6 collision



Rachel Warwick

The family of a Rachel from Whitehaven 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.

Rachel’s family recently said: “Rachel was a very much loved Mam to Zoe, wife to Stephen, daughter to Rita and sister to Martin and Kathryn. The sudden and tragic loss of Rachel has caused us all extreme heartache, she will be missed by everyone who knew her”.

Our thoughts are with Rachel's family and friends at such a grieving time.

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.

Cumbria Constabulary 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 quoting log number 38.
