A 22-YEAR-OLD motorist who overtook a cyclist on a narrow Borders road struck the wing mirror of an oncoming vehicle, Selkirk Sheriff Court has been told.

Dashcam footage played in the courtroom showed how 22-year-old Lilly Glendinning swerved out to pass the bike but hit the oncoming vehicle instead.

The incident happened on the A701 road near Broughton, on August 9, 2022.

Glendinning of Eastriggs, Dumfriesshire, was initially charged with dangerous driving but pleaded guilty to the lesser charge   of careless driving before a trial was due to get under way.

Sheriff Kevin McCarron fined the woman £350 and ordered five penalty points were placed on her licence.
