A WOMAN whose garden turned into a crash scene desperately wants to see speed cameras installed nearby as she fears someone could be killed.

Lesley Graham’s fence was smashed and the debris of a car left lying across her garden, which sits just off the A713 at Hollybush outside of Ayr.

Now she has sparked calls for a lower speed limit to be introduced on the road, with traffic cameras as well.

Ayr Advertiser:

After a series of close calls on the road, she is fears one day it could be worse as her nieces often play in the garden.

Lesley was horrified when she was alerted by CCTV linked to her phone whilst out setting up her new business in Ayr.

She rushed home to be greeted by police on the site on Thursday, October 29.

Lesley told the Advertiser: “We’ve got our camera system all over the place.

“I got a notification to my phone to view the CCTV and suddenly I realised I’ve got no fence and there is this person running around my garden.

“I didn’t know what was happening, I rushed back to find police there who told me the car had overtaken a lorry and was going to crash head- on with another car so it crashed into my garden instead.

“It had taken the bollards out and everything. One of them was stuck underneath the car.”

Lesley described the scene in her garden as “chaos” as she was left with the mess to clear up with pieces of the car left lying across the grass and tyre marks.

She said: “It is really annoying. I’ve had the rest of the mess to deal with all around my garden, there’s still bits lying around.

Ayr Advertiser:

“I also had to contact my own insurance even though we weren’t there or even involved.”

For Lesley, the crash was the final straw after carers who look after her mum were clipped by speeding motorists and her son’s car was also hit.

She added: “I wish they would put a camera up and reduce the speed to 50mph. It is a boy racer’s heaven up there. We are quite often trying to stop people – they need to slow down.

“There was a bull killed not so long ago and before we bought this house the last owners told us there was a crash.

“It could have been much worse. We’ve got dogs and my nieces have been known to go out in the garden to play.”

A police spokesman said: “Officers were called following reports of a collision on the A713 at Hollybush on Thursday, October 29. “Nobody was injured in the incident. A 21-year-old man has been reported to the Procurator Fiscal.”
