Johannesburg - Randburg Magistrate's Court officials will visit an accident scene in Sandhurst, Johannesburg, were former Bafana Bafana star Bryce Moon allegedly hit and killed a woman with his car.

Following the request by Moon's attorney on Tuesday, Magistrate Vince Pienaar, the defence, as well as witnesses would go to Katherine Street where the accident occurred on June 30, 2009.

Moon allegedly hit Mavis Ncube with his Mercedes Benz Coupe. She was taken to the Morningside clinic where she died from her injuries.

    Sometimes I ask myself why the court can take so long time to sentence a perpetrator even though he/her did confess that he did that mistake. Why

      He had better pay the victims family he has left them without a bread winner and her children are now orphans. If he has any form of common decency , instead of trying to fight the case he should already be at the table finding a way to assist the family

    Murder (noun): The unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. What's with this new "tendency" to charge drivers with murder? Are prosecutors saying that Moon *planned* to take the victim's life? Or is it a way of of getting the rich and famous off - that if they don't *prove* that the killing was premeditated then he's not guilty?
