No plea made over charges
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.
