A woman is to stand trial accused of causing the death of a cyclist in Fife 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 in a smash on the A92 in Freuchie in February 2015.
Mr Christie died at Victoria Hospital in Kirkcaldy five days after the crash as a result of his injuries.
Hedley is said to have driven her Vauxhall Corsa without due care or attention and overtook 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, Dundee, pleaded not guilty on indictment to a charge of causing death by careless driving.
Defence solicitor George Donnelly said: “There is CCTV which is not of the accident itself, but it shows the deceased at a filling station just before the incident.
“It shows the condition of his bicycle and what he is wearing.”
Sheriff Lorna Drummond QC set a trial date in August and ordered Hedley to appear at a pre-trial hearing in July.
