A PENSIONER caused a crash on the A1 severely injuring another woman, Jedburgh Sheriff Court has been told.

Sixty-seven-year-old Charmaine Grant was turning off the road and into the Eyemouth junction when she struck a south-bound vehicle on the afternoon of November 24 last year.

The driver suffered a broken rib and bruising to the face, chest and legs and was taken to Borders General Hospital while Grant was uninjured.

Depute fiscal Drew Long said that while both vehicles swerved to avoid each other, they collided on the passenger side and were both extensively damaged.

Grant told the court she had no recollection of the accident after from remembering it was wet and the headlights approaching.

The voluntary worker from Eyemouth pleaded guilty to careless driving by failing to give way to oncoming traffic while attempting to negotiate a junction and was fined £400 and her licence endorsed with six penalty points.

A £20 Victim Surcharge was also imposed.
