A MAN has been banned from driving for 18 months after narrowly avoiding a head-on collision on the A303.
The incident, which happened between the Longbarrow roundabout and Winterbourne Stoke on Sunday, September 25 last year, was caught on dramatic dashcam footage.
Wiltshire Police has released the images after one man was convicted of careless driving and another of dangerous driving in relation to the incident.
Chubby Isaac, of Kirby Road, Dartford, was found guilty of dangerous driving.
To avoid colliding with an oncoming vehicle, he hit the front of the lorry he was overtaking and left the road.
The 51-year-old was disqualified from driving for 18-months, given a community order to carry out 135 hours of unpaid work and fined almost £200 in costs when sentenced at Salisbury Magistrates Court on Friday, January 6.
His vehicle followed another van overtaking on a solid white line which was driven by Bronzell Obey, of Firs Lane, Potters Bar.
The 42-year-old was found guilty of careless driving and given four points on his licence along with a fine.
PC Tom Webster, of the Amesbury Response Team, said: “The actions taken by these two drivers were selfish and thoughtless.
“They put themselves, the occupants of the other vehicles and the public at huge risk. It is incredibly fortunate that nothing more serious happened.”
