A Dundee lorry driver is accused of killing an OAP at a traffic crossing.
HGV driver Gerald Clark was last month charged with causing the death of great-grandmother Mary Allan, from Aberdeen, by careless driving.
The 83-year-old, known to her friends as Molly, died at the King Street and St Machar Drive crossing in Aberdeen on September 10 last year.
Clark, 65, is alleged to have failed to keep his articulated vehicle clear of a pedestrian crossing while in queuing traffic, and stopped and blocked the crossing with his lorry.
It is further alleged that when the traffic signal at the crossing changed to red Clark failed to maintain observations and had his field of vision materially affected and blind spot in the front of the cab increased due to an additional shelf on the dashboard.
He is also accused of failing to make necessary mirror checks and proceeding through the pedestrian crossing, striking Mrs Allan, who was crossing the road, whereby she was so severely injured that she died.
Yesterday he appeared at the city’s sheriff court where he pled not guilty.
