A pensioner is accused of killing a cyclist in a road crash.
Adam Fernie, 80, is charged with hitting Iain Anderson then failing to stop on August 25, 2019.
Prosecutors claim Fernie was behind the wheel of a Nissan Cabstar pick-up on the B937 nears Edens Muir, Fife.
He allegedly failed to see Mr Anderson, 66, on the road ahead causing him to strike the cyclist.
It is said Fernie did not brake or take evasive action.
Mr Anderson, of Glenrothes, Fife, was so severely hurt that he did not survive.
A separate charge claims Fernie, of Lochgelly, Fife, did not stay at the scene of the alleged accident.
A further accusation states the Nissan had defects meaning a possible “danger of injury” to someone.
The case called for a hearing today/yesterday at the High Court in Glasgow.
Fernie denies causing death by dangerous as well as facing the two further charges under the Road Traffic Act.
Lord Matthews adjourned until a further hearing in January next year.
