The Victorian driver of the truck that struck and killed a woman driving on Swanport Bridge earlier this year, has plead not guilty to dangerous driving.

Kenneth Pillar will now go to trial in the district court next month, claiming he had a coughing fit before passing out when his B Double crossed on to the wrong side of the road slamming into another car.

His partner Belinda Thornton, who was a passenger in the truck at the time of the crash, has also been accused of committing acts endangering life.
