KIM McCusker, the young Johannesburg ­advocate who was dragged underneath a taxi for more than 700 metres in ­September 2011, will receive R10,4 million from the Road Accident Fund.

“I cannot say I am totally satisfied, but the trial was … emotionally and physically traumatic. If it had to continue another year, it would have made even more demands on me and my marriage. I chose the lesser of two evils,” she said. Her father, Douglas McCusker, who acted as her lawyer, confirmed they decided for logistical reasons to accept the settlement. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
