A 35-year-old man faces a trial by jury charged with causing serious injury by dangerous driving.

William Gibson denies the offence said to have happened on the A702 Edinburgh to Biggar road between Dolphinton and West Linton on December 2, 2017.

It is alleged he drove at excessive speeds for the conditions and overtook when it was unsafe to do so and collided head-on with a vehicle driven by Patrick McShane who was seriously injured.

It is said Mr McShane's son was injured as well as Gibson of McNeill Terrace, Loanhead, and both vehicles were damaged.

A trial date has been fixed for March 18.
