A psychotherapist caused a head-on collision after overtaking a tractor on a Fife road.
Lorna Allport, 49, was fined after she admitted driving carelessly by performing the manoeuvre on the A917 Anstruther to Crail road on September 3 2019.
Jane Dunlop suffered a broken rib and bruising after Allport drove into the path of her car.
Fiscal depute Michael Dunlop said at Dundee Sheriff Court: “The accused found herself behind a tractor and overtook the tractor into the path of the oncoming traffic.
“Both vehicles were extensively damaged.
“The complainer was taken to Ninewells Hospital for a fractured rib and bruising. No further surgery was required.”
Allport, of Kirkintilloch, pleaded guilty to driving carelessly by overtaking a tractor when unsafe to do so and colliding with Jane Dunlop’s vehicle causing extensive damage to both vehicles. She was previously charged with driving dangerously.
Defence solicitor Doug McConnell said: “I don’t think I can get across how devastated she was about this incident.”
Sheriff Alastair Carmichael fined Allport £600 and imposed six points on her licence.
