Bus was like rollercoaster before crash, trial is told
A RAIL worker has told a jury that a Rangers supporters bus which crashed killing a fan was like “a roller coaster” as it entered a roundabout.
Philip Storrie, 53, from Kirkconnel, Dumfriesshire, was was giving evidence at the trial of bus driver Callum Phillips who denies killing 39-year-old Ryan Baird by dangerous driving.
Phillips, 49, from Dalbeattie, Dumfries, is alleged to have caused the supporters bus to crash at the Crossroads Roundabout, near Kilmarnock, on October 1, 2016.
Mr Storrie told the High Court in Glasgow: “It became apparent to me we were approaching it too fast... We came round the roundabout like a roller coaster.”
The trial before judge Lady Stacey continues.
