The trial of a Johannesburg taxi driver, who allegedly ran over and dragged Kim McCusker several hundred metres along Lonehill Boulevard, on Friday was scheduled to resume at the Randburg Magistrate's Court in May.
The matter had been previously postponed at the state's request, to allow time for witnesses to be come forward.
Magistrate George Andrews spoke harshly to the prosecuting team, ordering the state to get its house in order.
Prosecutor Katlego Mokoena told the court, the state was still tracking down witnesses.
Matome Tamage faces charges of attempted murder and reckless driving after he knocked over and dragged the 25-year-old fadvocate or several hundred metres along the road.
McCusker was hospitalised for two months after the incident in September.
She was hit by the taxi after it crashed into the vehicle she and her fiancé, Lourens Grobler, were travelling in.
Grobler was charged for assault and malicious damage to property for allegedly hitting the taxi driver.
