Nurse who overtook in fog and caused crash faces jail

A NURSE could be jailed for dangerous driving after leaving a man with potentially life-altering injuries when she crashed head-on into his car while overtaking a lorry in heavy fog.

Lisa Maxwell was trying to pass a 50-foot HGV as she made her way to work in March last year.

When alongside the truck, a car emerged from the fog to smash into her vehicle on the A698 in Roxburghshire, leaving the other driver, Alexander Nairn, with injuries including a fractured kneecap. 

He underwent three operations to repair the damage.

Mr Nairn, 31, has still to regain full movement of the knee and suffers from discomfort and scarring.
