Johannesburg - Soccer player Bryce Moon's murder trial will resume on Wednesday in the Randburg Magistrate's Court.

Moon's attorney, advocate Naren Sangham, would continue with the cross-examination of the defence's accident reconstruction expert, Wilma Badenhorst.

Badenhorst told the court earlier there were no accurate accident records to determine the speed or point-of-impact of the crash that claimed the life of pedestrian Mavis Ncube.

Moon, 26, is on trial on charges of murder, alternatively attempted murder, drunken driving, and reckless or negligent driving.

He allegedly hit Ncube while driving down Katherine Street, Sandhurst, in his Mercedes-Benz in 2009. She died in hospital.

Prosecutor Roger Mareume earlier told the court that the accident happened on the side of the road and not on the road surface as Moon had testified.

Badenhorst said the documentation she had from police files were not sufficient to determine where Moon had actually hit Ncube.

She said she would rely on properly recorded evidence in order to determine how the accident happened.
