Pair to face Aberdeenshire campsite crash death trial

Two people are to go on trial charged with causing the death of a man by dangerous driving at a campsite.

Nathaniel Cooper, 30, from Inverbervie, and Kylie Johnston, 26, from Stonehaven, are both alleged to have been driving a car when Andrew MacKay was crushed between it and a caravan.

Mr MacKay, 65, of Dumbarton, died after the incident at East Balthangie caravan park, Cuminestown, Turriff.

The trial was set for 7 April at the High Court at Aberdeen.

It is claimed that Mr Cooper was sitting in the driver's seat controlling the accelerator, brake and clutch, while his co-accused was in the front passenger seat and operating the steering wheel.

The incident happened in July last year.

Judge Lady Rae set the Aberdeen trial date at the High Court in Glasgow.
