Man In Court Accused of Causing Death of Cyclist Last Year

A 45-year-old man has appeared in court today accused of causing the death of cyclist William Crawford after striking him with his vehicle on the A913 Cupar to Newburgh Road on September 26 last year.

It is alleged that the collision took place near the junction to the A92.

It is also alleged that Mr David McGregor, of Gallows Knowe, Crossgates, caused the death of Mr Crawford by driving his vehicle dangerously.

He is accused of failing to maintain proper observations, failing to see Mr Crawford cycling, and therefore causing his vehicle to collide with him and killing him.

The defendant entered no plea and was released on bail by the Sheriff with no date set as yet for a further court hearing.
