A motorist has been fined over an accident on a rural road in which he injured a cyclist.
Francis Humpage, of Kings Drive, Carnforth, swerved in front of a cyclist who then crashed into the back of his car.
The 60-year-old motorist appeared before Lancaster Magistrates Court.
He pleaded not guilty to driving without due care and attention.
But the bench found him guilty of the charge after hearing how he clipped a cyclist whilst overtaking them in his silver Volkswagen Passat.
The accident happened at 10.45am on January 6 as he drove down Main Road in Nether Kellet, Lancaster.
The court heard he was heading towards the village when he approached two cyclists who were riding side by side in the carriageway.
As he overtook them, he clipped the outside rider with his wing mirror on the way past.
Humpage then pulled in front of the cyclists and slowed down causing one of the cyclists to collide with the back of his car and into his back windscreen, causing injuries.
It is understood a compensation claim is going through the civil courts. Humpage was given five penalty points on his driving licence, fined £110 and ordered to pay £100 costs and a £15 victim surcharge.
