Drivers in court over fatal crash
Dumfries Sheriff Court
The three accused appeared in private at the court
Three drivers have appeared in court in connection with a seven-vehicle crash in which three people died last month.

Stuart Logue, 18, Graham Lynn, 20, and Shaun Marshall, 17, are accused of causing death by dangerous driving and racing their cars at excessive speed.

Luke Sherman, 16, and Mark Johnston, 17, both from Dumfries, died in the crash along with Bethany Jane Secker, 21, a physiotherapist from Bristol.

The three made no plea at Dumfries Sheriff Court. The case was continued.

The crash took place in mid-afternoon on 5 November on the A75 west of Dumfries at a place called The Glen.

It involved six cars and a lorry.

The three accused, all from Dumfries, appeared in private on petition at the court.

Mr Logue is also accused of losing control of his car, causing it to collide with that driven by Miss Secker.
