Taxi dragging case postponed

2012-02-28 14:28

Johannesburg - The trial of a minibus taxi driver who allegedly ran over a young advocate and dragged her under his taxi was postponed by the Randburg Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Matome Thamage, 30, will appear in court again on March 30.

Thamage's taxi allegedly hit McCusker and dragged her along Lonehill Boulevard in September.

Afterwards, she was taken to hospital and underwent surgery. McCusker was later reportedly discharged from hospital.

In a telephone interview after the court case, McCusker's father Douglas said there was no truth to the rumours that his daughter had died. "She's back home... alive and she's doing very well."

    OMG they make it sound as if she was just quickly taken to Hospital, had minor surgery and was discharged later that day... (yet she was there for months if I remember correctly)... very bad journalism!

    Who wrote this? It's useless. Do these journalists get paid for this? Anyone know the inner workings of News24 or someone there that could address these problems?

    Is this the story of the Taxi Driver who ran over the legal eagle who stood in front of the taxi while being assaulted by her "Rambo" boyfriend ? You stand in front of the Taxi while the driver is being assaulted - you are risking being dragged down the road the the Hi Ace - Common sense
