Reckless lorry driver

Shetland’s top woman cyclist Christine McLean is recovering after an accident where she was forced off the road by an overtaking lorry. The driver of the lorry, a blue-sided roadworks contractor’s vehicle, failed to stop after the incident and Christine feels they should be made aware of the fact that she could easily have been seriously injured or even killed

“The lorry driver caused the accident by recklessly overtaking me too close, too fast, in the circumstances with the oncoming traffic and leaving me with the choice of either going under his wheels or leaving the road.
