A Fife woman says almost being hit by a wrong-way driver was “the scariest moment of my life”.
Chloe Ray, 19, says the terrifying incident happened in Kirkcaldy late on Wednesday evening.
Chloe says she was a passenger in a car being driven by a friend when they came face to face with the speeding driver at the junction of Robert Adam Drive and Chapel Level.
“My friend and I were driving along the carriageway heading towards Asda when we saw this outrageous Corsa VXR with a headlight out driving the wrong way round the roundabout,” she said.
“I shouted to my friend to stop immediately because I could see a head-on collision happening otherwise.
“The male driver swerved past us, dropped a gear then zoomed off, away from a chasing patrol car and into more oncoming traffic.”
“It was the scariest moment of my life.”
Three police units were in pursuit of the vehicle at one point.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police in Fife received a report of a Vauxhall Corsa having been stolen from an address in Leven at around 10.50 p.m. on Wednesday 25th January.
“Officers then spotted the vehicle travelling at excessive speeds and driving on the wrong side of the road in Dunnikier Way, Kirkcaldy at around 11.10 p.m. that evening.
“The car was subsequently found abandoned on the A909, near to Mossmoran and inquiries are continuing to trace those responsible.
“Anyone with information is asked to come forward.”
