Alfredo Ciociola, from Sicilly, is accused of causing death by dangerous driving in Moray.
A man has appeared in court over a crash which killed five people.
Alfredo Ciociola, 46, is accused of causing death by dangerous driving after a collision between a car and bus in Moray last year.
Ciociola, from Sicilly, made no plea and was released on bail following Friday's hearing at Elgin Sheriff Court.
Ted Reid, 63, from Macduff, and Evalyn Collie, 69, and Audrey Appleby, 70, from the Aberchirder area of Aberdeenshire, all died in the crash on the A96 shortly before midnight on July 26.
They were in a car travelling back from a country music event when they collided with a minibus carrying Italian tourists.
Two people on the bus - four-year-old Lorenzo Ciociola and Frances Saliba Patane, 63, both from Sicily - also died in the crash.
