A reckless motorcyclist has been caught on a motorist’s dashcam performing a dangerous overtake on the A16 near Louth, narrowly missing a head-on collision with an oncoming lorry.
The incident occurred on the A16 at Cordeaux Corner, just north of Louth, on Tuesday evening (October 24).
A local motorist, who shared the dashcam footage with the Leader today, said: “Some biker clearly doesn’t value his life!”
The footage shows the motorcyclist overtake the motorist’s vehicle, before overtaking the car in front of him on the corner - avoiding an oncoming lorry by a matter of inches. The motorcyclist can be seen continuing his journey undeterred, despite the near miss.
Cordeaux Corner has seen a number of accidents in recent years - including some which caused serious injury or death - and the prospect of speed limit reductions for this stretch of road have been discussed by county and town councillors in the past.
