A lorry driver has denied causing the death of another motorist on the A140 in Suffolk by driving without due care.
Paul Walker appeared at Ipswich Crown Court for a plea and trial preparation hearing on Thursday.
The 75-year-old, of High Road, Needham, near Harleston, Norfolk, denied causing the death of Haydn Lander by driving without due care and attention on December 11, 2019.
Emergency services were called at 6.30am to a collision involving a DAF HGV, a Peugeot Partner van and a SEAT Ibiza on the A140 at Little Stonham.
The van driver, Mr Lander, died at the scene.
The road remained closed for several hours for a crash scene investigation to take place.
Judge Martyn Levett set a date for Walker's trial to begin on Monday, April 25, 2022.
