Fatal crash in­quiry

The Galloway News - - INTIMATIONS -

A fatal ac­ci­dent in­quiry has been set to take place into the death of a man after a crash on the A75.

Fifty-five-year-old carer James Penny, of Port Street, Dal­beat­tie, was trav­el­ling west near Haugh of Urr, when his car was in­volved in a col­li­sion with an east bound van.

Mr Penny, who worked for Dum­fries and Gal­loway Coun­cil, died from his in­juries shortly after the ac­ci­dent in February last year.

The in­quiry will take place at Dum­fries Sher­iff Court at the be­gin­ning of Oc­to­ber. A 60-year-old Cas­tle Dou­glas man who had in­de­cent im­ages of chil­dren on his com­puter has been placed on the sex of­fender’s reg­is­ter by the sher­iff at Dum­fries.

Al­lan Craig, of the town’s Gar­den­hill Drive, will be told the pe­riod it will span when he ap­pears for sen­tence in six weeks’time fol­low­ing the prepa­ra­tion of back­ground re­ports.

Craig ad­mit­ted com­mit­ting the of­fence be­tween Oc­to­ber 17 and Novem­ber 22 last year.

Fis­cal de­pute Jen­nifer McGill said the im­ages were in three dif­fer­ent cat­e­gories with the to­tal be­ing 46.
