A motorist crashed into a high-powered Mitsubishi Evo after failing to notice it overtaking her on a notorious Fife road.
Margaret Johnstone’s accident was used by Police Scotland in a road safety message.
She shunted the sports car into woodland on the notorious Standing Stane Road last July.
Driver Jim Cassells required hospital treatment after the Evo hit a tree, roof-first.
Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court heard Johnstone was at the wheel of a Nissan Qashqai at the time.
Fiscal depute Michael Robertson said at the time of the incident conditions were dry.
He said: “At around 3.51pm witness Goodsir was travelling northbound in her BMW3 series.
“She observed a black Mitsubishi Evolution travelling in front of her.
“The driver of the Mitsubishi, witness Cassells, has appeared to enter the oncoming lane to perform an overtake of a blue Nissan Qashqui driven by the accused.
“Witness Goodsir had also moved into the opposing lane after assessing there was a big enough gap for her to also perform an overtake.
“As witness Cassells has drawn level with the Nissan the accused, without warning or indication, pulled out to overtake the preceding vehicle in her path.
“This caused a collision where the Nissan has collided with the front of the Mitsubishi forcing it off the lane and into nearby woodland.
“The Mitsubishi was projected forwards into the woodland where the roof of the vehicle has struck a tree, causing major intrusion of the roof area.”
Mr Cassells was treated by paramedics before being taken to the Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy.
Johnstone, of Methil Brae, Methil, admitted driving carelessly on the A915 between Kirkcaldy and Leven on July 31 last year.
Solicitor Raymond Wachtel, defending, said Johnstone had an unblemished driving record.
He also highlighted the notorious nature of the road.
Sheriff James Williamson stopped short of banning the 62-year-old from the road, citing her clean licence.
He handed her six penalty points and fined her £400.
