No plea made over charges

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

A man ap­peared in court last week ac­cused of caus­ing the death of an east Perthshire tod­dler by dan­ger­ous driv­ing.

Two-year-old Har­low Ed­wards, of Coupar An­gus, died fol­low­ing a crash in­volv­ing a car on the A94 For­far Road, near Larghan Park, on Oc­to­ber 13 last year.

A six-year-old boy and a 17-year-old girl also suf­fered se­ri­ous in­juries in the in­ci­dent.

Twenty-three-year-old Luke Pirie, of For­far, made no plea fol­low­ing a brief ap­pear­ance be­fore Sher­iff Lindsay Foulis at Perth Sher­iff Court.

His case was con­tin­ued for fur­ther in­quiries and he was freed on bail pend­ing a fur­ther court ap­pear­ance at a later date.

It is al­leged that he drove a car dan­ger­ously, col­lided with an­other ve­hi­cle and mounted the kerb. He is also al­leged to have caused se­ri­ous in­jury to the other two people who were walk­ing with the vic­tim at the time.

Har­low was the youngest of five chil­dren of 39-year-old Steven Har­low and his wife, Sara (36).

They sub­se­quently set up the char­ity Har­low’s Help­ing Hand in mem­ory of the the tragic tot.

They want to pro­vide prac­ti­cal ad­vice and fi­nan­cial sup­port to par­ents who have lost chil­dren in sim­i­lar cir­cum­stances.
