A truck driver has denied ignoring height warning signs on a main Angus road and crashing his vehicle into an east coast line railway bridge.
Wilson Robertson from Arbroath appeared at Forfar Sheriff Court on Tuesday to face a charge relating to an incident in January.
Robertson, 44, of Cliffburn Road, is charged with driving a lorry registered 77LS dangerously on January 6 on the A92 Arbroath to Montrose road at Inverkeilor.
The charge alleges that Robertson failed to comply with various road signs indicating that there was a height restriction at the rail bridge and the clearance height was 13.9 feet when his vehicle height identifier was set at 15 feet, and he thereafter attempted to drive under the railway bridge when his vehicle was outwith the permitted height, resulting in the lorry striking the bridge and causing it to overturn, causing damage to the bridge and inconvenience to other road and rail users.
Depute fiscal Jill Drummond told the court the trial is scheduled to involve two civilian witnesses and one police officer.
A Crown motion for a rescheduled date for the trial because of the potential unavailability of the police witness was granted by Sheriff Gregor Murray.
Robertson is due to go to trial on November 10, with a further intermediate diet in the case arranged for October 20.
