Coronavirus delay for Celtic loanee as virus forces court date postponement

With the current Coronavirus crisis we’re starting to realise just how many public services and normal things are being affected.

It’s something that few will worry about, but the legal system will come under strain and that’s equally true for any court cases where anyone might be suffering from the virus.

Anthony Ralston is currently on loan at St Johnstone from Celtic, and he was the victim in a crash that involved someone else driving in a dangerous manner last year.

According to STV, the accused was having to self isolate due to Coronavirus symptoms and couldn’t attend the court, so a new date will have to be set later in the year.

The report suggests the defendant was charged with driving too fast and struggling to maintain control of his vehicle, where he then swerved onto the other side of the road and had a head on collision with Ralston.

It sounds like Ralston was lucky to escape with no horrific injuries when you read the description of the crash, so hopefully this goes ahead later in the year and allows him to get some closure.
