A crash occurred, but according to police, no one was injured in the accident.

In a post published on Facebook, Fife Police Division offered advice for drivers, and wrote: "You may cross the line if necessary, provided the road is clear, to pass a stationary vehicle, or overtake a pedal cycle, horse or road maintenance vehicle, if they are travelling at 10 mph (16 km/h) or less”.

"Dangerous driving like this is one of the #Fatal5 reasons for road fatalities and is clearly not acceptable”.
