Bryce Moon crash victim 'mincemeat'

2011-12-08 15:05

Johannesburg - A woman knocked down and killed, allegedly by Supersport United defender Bryce Moon, sustained severe pelvic injuries, the Randburg Magistrate's Court heard on Thursday.

Paramedic Matthew Watermeyer said the woman had an open cut from her belly button to her vagina.

"You could not tell which tissue was where... it was like mincemeat."

Watermeyer said he had only seen similar injuries at a skydiving accident and on a pedestrian hit by a bakkie at 140km/h on a highway.

Mavis Ncube was knocked down while walking to work in Sandhurst, Johannesburg, in 2009.

Watermeyer said when paramedics tried to wrap Ncube's pelvic area with a sheet to prevent further bleeding, her pelvis shrunk to about 10cm in diameter.

"And she was a rather large woman," he said.

He was surprised by her injuries as they were not those that could be sustained in a suburban area where the speed limit was 60km/h.

Watermeyer was the first paramedic to arrive at the accident scene.

    Shocking and very sad! How do you live with yourself knowin you did that to another, perfectly innocent human being?

      Sharon - 2011-12-08 15:53

      Sometimes I think some people JUST DON'T care.

      Fumanchu - 2011-12-08 16:02

      I agree, and that while she was walking to work most probably at what time in the morning and here comes this brat, poepdronk and takes away a breadwinner for the family. He almost got away with it... if it weren't for her employer who kept fighting, there would have been no justice at all.

  • Cosmos O'Ndebele - 2011-12-08 15:21

    Jail this fool

      Frikkie - 2011-12-08 15:24

      Can't agree more with you on this one. Speed is great, but what this prick did, should give him a free ride to jail where tyrone will help him forget about the pain of his "mistake"

  • sandy.hammond - 2011-12-08 15:30

    An example needs to made of this drunk driver!

  • kitneyi - 2011-12-08 15:30

    This is sick, why has it taken 3 years for him to be sentenced!!!

  • motsoka - 2011-12-08 15:46

  • Mhlonso - 2011-12-08 15:47

    I "mince meat" necessary?

      Sharon - 2011-12-08 15:55

      It just goes to show how severe the injury was that he could only compare it with mince meat.

  • Ltk - 2011-12-08 15:48

    Was it necessary to say that..

      Sakhile - 2011-12-08 15:58

      let him play soccer in jail - he will be a wonderful striker in an orange kit !

      sean.redmond3 - 2011-12-09 09:16

      Yes, to get the message across.

  • Reitz - 2011-12-08 16:04

    Pedestrians should be more careful. If you get hit by a car you could almost certainly have avoided it by being more alert. Walking in a street is one of the most dangerous things anyone could do. Its very simple. In a battle between a car and a human, a car will ALWAYS win. People crossing streets should be more alert instead of walking over like they own the road without even looking. I was run over by a car when I was 7 years old. And it could have been avoided had I been more alert. People should be more careful. And I am not saying that is what happened here... But the moral of the story is... A person is no match for a car. Before ridiculing a driver, start looking at the pedestrians too. Remember. A car takes a lot longer to stop than a person.

      Cina - 2011-12-08 16:16

      I was knocked over by a car and I was careful walking on the side of the road. I'm quite large and her excuse was she didn't see me. For crying out load motorist should be more alert.

      JudithNkwe - 2011-12-08 16:40

      Motorists should be aware of pedestrians. If you're drunk and speeding then you should be taken off the road permanently. The lack of pavements make walking to work extremely hazardous

      wesleywt - 2011-12-08 17:49

      Sure, kill someone while driving drunk and speeding well over 60kph in a residential area. Its definitely the pedestrians fault. When will morons learn that they are not Alonso, they can't drive and the insurance will not pay them out if they break the law.

      Tshivhombela Fhatuwani - 2011-12-08 19:43

      Everyone becomes a pedestrian, even drivers outside of their cars are pedestrian. You can be knocked over anywhere, including mall parking. Drivers must be careful.

      Pat-Jen - 2011-12-09 06:59

      Reitz, if you have been following the article you would immediately be aware that Mavis was WALKING ON A VERY WIDE PAVEMENT AND THAT THE VEHICLE ACTUALLY WAS GOING SO FAST WHEN THE DRUNK DRIVER LOST CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. THEY HEARD THE VEHICLE AT THE SAME TIME THEY SAW IT AND THE VEHICLE TRAPPED MAVIS. SO THE MORAL OF YOUR STORY IS...........?

      sean.redmond3 - 2011-12-09 09:18

      @cina, I have had the same excuse, he did not see me, and I was on a motor bike, go figure.

      Gregory - 2011-12-09 09:58

      Wasn't it a bit early in the afternoon for you to have been gesuip and write such K*K, pertaining to this case? The thing was pissed out of his bracket at 6 in the morning. Do you know how many sidewalks in Johannesburg probibit you from walking on them, due to various reasons, thus forcing you to walk on the edge of the road? Nee man, in general, you make a valid point, but to use it in this case is just plain............. well, forget it.......... I can't find a polite word

  • Grant - 2011-12-08 16:06

    I don't think such graphic details of the injuries should have been published.

      Stephen - 2011-12-08 16:10

      I agree... On the off chance the family of the victim read this, it would destroy them all over again.

      wesleywt - 2011-12-08 17:51

      It should be published because their are idiots out there who are driving like they are the only person on the road. Instead of fining speeders they should be sentenced to work 1 day in the morgue. That should sort them out.

      Robert - 2011-12-08 18:33

      reallity hurts,,, doesn't it??

      K0BUSL - 2011-12-09 08:30

      Grant, having been a RescueMedic for a number of years, such details should preferably be provided with Photographic proof. If the public saw 1/10th of what these rescue paramedics see, they would probably gag, chuck their lunch and book of sick for a few weeks, but damn it would be a wake-up call that shocks your socks and makes you think 100 times before doing something stupid

      Gregory - 2011-12-09 10:20

      Why 'on the off chance'?

  • mbongenia - 2011-12-08 16:30

    did she die? if she did DEATH SENTENCE PLEASE!

      Henning - 2011-12-08 16:39

      UHM IF YOU READ THE ARTICLE PROPERLY, YOU WILL SEE THAT SHE WAS KNOCKED DOWN AND KILLED IN THE FIRST SENTENCE OF THE ARTICLE......

      Gregory - 2011-12-09 10:21

      Have friggen mercy on us!

  • Cheryl - 2011-12-08 16:32

    No need for the graphic description News24......HOW WOULD U FEEL IF IT WAS YOUR SISTER THAT WAS INJURED IN THIS MANNER... you are just trying to make money out of this!!!!!!!!!

  • Leslie - 2011-12-08 16:55

    I hope that they manage to change the law and are able to charge a drunk driver for murder. In some countries the law says that if you have any alcohol, you are not allowed to get behind the wheel of a car. Wish they would introduce that here. Not matter how alert a pedestrian is, a drunk driver in unpredictable. Hope that the driver is punished harshly.

  • Berkold - 2011-12-08 17:10

    Lock him up and throw away the key ..... or if he was drinking ..... HANG HIM HIGH!!

  • naeem.essop - 2011-12-08 19:03

    Ew.

  • Cheryl - 2011-12-08 22:59

    news 24 sensationalising someones tragic death ' mincemeat'. society and the press are sick.....hope u become mincemeat too

      Gregory - 2011-12-09 10:21

      Wasn't News24's word (for once..................)

  • wendy.olivier - 2011-12-09 07:45

    Horrific! Dont quite get the bit about the pelvis shrinking to 10cm??? People have no regard for the rules of the roads - I hope he never has a peacefull night's rest EVER!

  • Peter - 2011-12-09 08:39

    As long as cops take bribes the rule of law will never be respected, on the assumption by guilty drivers that if they do get caught they have the OPTION of bribing the cop. If cop bribery is not stopped there will be no improvement. We only hear about drunk celebs when they kill people. On other occasions I strongly feel they simply bribe the cop and then say "phew, I managed to get away with that one" If we polygraphed the metro cops how many would fail the question "have you accepted a bribe", 90%, 95%. This is a sad, but true fact.

  • Janice - 2011-12-09 09:15

    A BIT TOO DETAILED FOR ME!!!

      Klipkop - 2011-12-09 10:51

      Say the merc driver that dont use indicators and speed like a maniac. Yes I am generalising. Merc, audi, bmw drivers need to see this in the printed media and the eve news! Plus your car need graphic pics on the dashboard to remind you that speed kills!
