A warrant has been issued for two men accused of driving at speeds of more than 135 mph on a notorious Fife road.
The case against Brad Peacock and Javid Aslam first called at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court on Thursday.
Peacock, of Woodend Park in Cardenden, is accused of driving a Ford Fiesta ST-2 Turbo on the A915 Standing Stane Road between Kirkcaldy and Leven on May 2 last year.
The 21-year-old is charged with dangerous driving on a public road whereby he allegedly reached speeds in excess of 135 mph.
Aslam, of Causewayhead in Kennoway, is also accused of dangerous driving on the same stretch of road on the same date.
The 40-year-old was allegedly driving a BMW 530D saloon car at the same high speeds during the incident.
Fiscal depute Nicola Henderson asked for an initiating warrant to apprehend both men due to the date of the alleged offences.
Sheriff Grant McCulloch granted the request for both accused.
Crashes on the Standing Stane Road claimed the lives of three young men in 2018 alone.
Ryan Leigh Dorrill tragically passed away following a one vehicle accident at around 10am on Hogmanay.
The 25-year-old’s Vauxhall Astra left the road and collided with a tree just east of the Checkbar junction leading to Coaltown of Wemyss.
Two teenage footballers also died following a separate accident on the same stretch of road on November 11.
Ethan King, 17, who was the front seat passenger in a Vauxhall Corsa, was sadly pronounced dead at the scene after the accident.
Childhood friend and fellow footballer Connor Aird was rushed to hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Despite a brave battle, the 17-year-old tragically passed away five days later.
Another passenger, Danny Stevens, 18, was also seriously hurt but has since been released from hospital and is recovering.
The 17-year-old driver of the car, who was also taken to hospital, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.
No one has yet been formally charged in connection with the accident.
