IDIOT VAN DRIVER CAUGHT ON CAM.

A DRIVER with a "death wish" almost caused carnage while trying to overtake on a blind corner.

The incident on the A87 between Skye and Loch Ness was captured on a dash cam and has been posted on Scotland's Worst Drivers.

The motorist who took the footage on Friday told the website: "When we approached a sharp bend, I remember thinking it was a bit dicey when a silver van pulled out to overtake a car and then a camper van.

"But when the blue van pulled out I thought, 'That idiot has a death wish.' When I saw the oncoming cars, I thought there was going to be a head-on collision."

Two of the oncoming cars had to veer sharply on to the embankment to avoid hitting the blue Vivaro.

Incredibly, the van driver drove on without stopping to check if everybody was OK.
