A driver has denied causing the death of a café owner by dangerous driving.
Samuel Lloyd, 27, of Rockfield Road, Oban, is accused of overtaking in his VW Tiguan and colliding with the oncoming Citroen of 58-year-old Julie Anne Goodman, known as Joolz.
It is alleged to have taken place on the A816 Lochgilphead to Oban road near to the Oude Dam Kilmelford on October 15, 2018.
Mrs Goodman, who ran the Little Potting Shed cafe in Oban with her husband Russell, died at the scene.
Advocate Niall McCluskey entered a not guilty plea to causing death by dangerous driving on behalf of Lloyd, who was sitting in the dock at the High Court in Glasgow.
Lloyd has offered a plea to the reduced charge of causing death by careless driving, but this was rejected by the Crown.
He pleaded guilty to driving without insurance.
Prosecutor Isla Davie QC said: “I accept the plea of guilty to driving without insurance there will be a trial for the charge of causing death by dangerous driving.”
Judge Lord Mulholland continued the case to a further hearing in August. No trial was set because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis.
When a trial is set it is expected to last four to five days.
Lloyd is on bail.
