Cumbria A6 crash victim David Robinson 'missed by many'
A Cumbrian man has died in a crash on the A6 between Penrith and Carlisle.
David Robinson, of Cross Garth, Shap, died in a collision between his Ford Escort and an HGV near Petteril Green, at about 18:15 GMT on Monday.
The 50-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. The lorry driver, a 53-year-old man from Hull, was uninjured but needed treatment for shock.
Mr Robinson's son, Christopher Pickering, said he was a "good man" who died driving the car "he loved".
"He worked very hard and kept his family happy," his family said in a statement.
"He kept himself to himself but had an outgoing personality. He was very kind.
"He had a big group of friends scattered all over the country. He will be missed by many."
Cumbria Police are appealing for any witnesses to the collision to contact them.
