A 38-year-old woman has appeared in private at Jedburgh Sheriff Court accused of causing the death of a passenger in her car by careless driving.
Carron Allan, from Coldstream, crashed on the Kelso to Cornhill road at Redden Farm in June last year.
Michelle Bennett, 47, from Berwick-upon-Tweed, died in the accident.
Ms Allan made no plea during a brief hearing before the sheriff and the case was continued for further examination.
She was released on bail by Sheriff Peter Paterson.
