A Dundee woman is to stand trial accused of causing the death of a cyclist by overtaking a lorry “when it was unsafe” and colliding head on with his bike.
Jessica Hedley faces a charge of causing death by careless driving after David Christie, 49, died following an accident on the A92 at Freuchie in February 2015.
Mr Christie died at Victoria Hospital, Kirkcaldy, five days after the incident as a result of his injuries.
Hedley is said to have driven her Vauxhall Corsa without due care or attention and overtaken a lorry when it was unsafe to do so.
Prosecutors say she failed to observe Mr Christie riding his bike on the opposing carriageway, causing the car and bike to collide whereby Mr Christie was so severely injured that he later died.
Hedley, 25, of Craigard Road, pleaded not guilty to a charge of causing death by careless driving.
Sheriff Lorna Drummond QC set a trial date for August and ordered Hedley to appear at a pre-trial hearing in July.
In a statement released by Police Scotland at the time of his death, David’s family said: “David was a much loved son and father, who will be hugely missed by family and friends.”
