Driver Runs Ex-Traffic Cop Off The Road

 A former traffic cop was forced off the road after a fellow driver failed to spot he was already overtaking a lorry. The shocking dash cam footage shows Mike Ashford-Smith begin to overtake a car and a lorry.

 

But as he gets alongside the SUV, it pulls out causing Mr Ashford-Smith to take evasive action in his Peugeot 207 estate.

He broke heavily but lost traction sending his car rolling over several times into a field.

He had been travelling with his wife along the A7 between Galashiels to Edinburgh when the crash happened.

Mr Ashford-Smith, who had to be cut from his car by the emergency services, said he was grateful to have his dashcam on, as it saved any arguments from the insurance companies.

The footage was passed onto Police Scotland and the vehicle was identified as belonging to a car hire company.
