This accident in Firth involved two cars and a motorcycle. None of the eight passengers were in the least bit hurt.
It seems amazing that road crashes could still occur when hardly anybody owned a vehicle and the roads were so much clearer than today.
Orkney roads are still pretty good. There are no motorways, traffic lights or big roundabouts to negotiate and the speed limit is only 60mph.
You may think,then, that this would be a pretty easy place to pass your driving test. Well then you would be stupid, ugly and wrong. Not that any member of staff attempted to do so recently, because if they did then they would have definitely passed. And they definitely would NOT have stalled four times during their bay parking exercise. Definitely not...
