The case of a Regina man accused in the death of a woman who was struck in a construction zone was in court Tuesday.

A lawyer for 44-year-old Keith Dunford appeared on his behalf in a Weyburn courtroom.

Dunford is charged with dangerous driving causing the death of 18-year-old Ashley Dawn Richards of New Brunswick. A second charge of criminal negligence causing death was amended to criminal negligence.

Richards was working as a flag person when she was fatally struck by an SUV in a construction zone on Highway 39 north of Midale on Aug. 24.
