Coldstream woman faces passenger death charge

A 38-year-old woman has appeared in private at Jedburgh Sheriff Court accused of causing the death of her passenger by careless driving.

Carron Allan, from Coldstream, crashed on the Kelso to Cornhill road at Redden Farm in June last year.

Michelle Bennett, 47, from Berwick-upon-Tweed, died in the accident.

Ms Allan made no plea during a brief hearing and the case was continued for further examination.

She was released on bail by Sheriff Peter Paterson.
