Dalmally farmer impaled lorry with bale spike

A DALMALLY farmer has been fined £500 for impaling a lorry windscreen with a bale spike.

George MacPherson, 51, of Brackley Farm, Dalmally, admitted driving without due care and attention on the A819 near Cladich on December 9, when his tractor carried a load at its front, obscuring his view of the road and collided with a stationary vehicle, causing it damage.

Procurator fiscal Eoin McGinty told Oban Sheriff Court on Tuesday February 28 that a lorry driver had parked at the side of the road around 5pm, put on its flashing lights and left the cabin.
