Moon was aggresive, abusive - witness
Johannesburg - Soccer star Bryce Moon was aggressive towards hospital staff after he was involved in an accident, the Randburg Magistrate's Court heard on Thursday.
"He was aggressive... and very abusive until another man came to calm him down and then he co-operated," testified paramedic Matthew Watermeyer.
Moon is on trial on a culpable homicide charge after hitting a Johannesburg woman, Mavis Ncube, with his Mercedes-Benz coupe in Sandhurst in June 2009.
She died in hospital from her injuries.
Watermeyer said he was the first paramedic on the scene and assessed Ncube's injuries.
"One was to the head, although there were no obvious trauma signs to the head, but her eyes were crossing indicating a head injury."
Watermeyer said Ncube's injuries were so severe that when paramedics at the scene tried to roll her onto a trauma board, her legs and pelvis stayed on the ground.
"This would indicate that her spine and pelvis were not connected any more... she was much like a rag-doll."
He said doctors at the clinic said she was too unstable for a CT scan or an MRI.
Moon was taken to the same hospital by ambulance.
The paramedic said that when he arrived at the scene, he noticed Moon had a cut on his forehead. Moon and his two passengers said they were fine.
Watermeyer said Moon was shouting at staff after he arrived at Morningside Clinic.
"He even attempted to climb out of the bed he had been placed on," said Watermeyer.
The trial continues on Friday.
