Van driver's crash into motorbike rider caught on film

A biker's helmet camera captured the moment a van driver crashed into him after failing to see him coming while turning on a road in Gwynedd.

Rider Kevin Quirk, 32, from Pensby, Wirral, fractured his elbow in the crash near Betws-y-Coed last August.

Driver Ian Smith, 57, of Maesgwyn Road, Llandudno, admitted careless driving, saying he had not seen Mr Quirk approaching as he turned right.

He was given an £80 fine and five penalty points on his licence.

The footage was shown in Flintshire Magistrates' Court during Smith's hearing.
