Johannesburg - The case against a taxi driver accused of trying to murder of an advocate was postponed by the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

Magistrate George Andrews told Matome Thamage, 30, and five witnesses to return to court on Tuesday as the defence attorney did not yet have a copy of the docket.

On September 13, Thamage's taxi hit and dragged Kim McCusker several hundred metres along Lonehill Boulevard, in Fourways. She was in hospital for two months and underwent extensive skin grafts to repair her injuries.

Thamage claimed he drove off while fleeing an assault by McCusker's then fiancé Lourens Grobler, after the taxi almost hit the couple's bakkie in morning traffic. The couple has since married.

Thamage said he did not realise McCusker was under his vehicle when he drove away.

Thamage's bail of R5 000 was extended.
