JOHANNESBURG - Carl Pistorius's lawyer on Wednesday argued that a state witness version of what happened on the night of an accident in which a woman was killed was totally incorrect.

Pistorius is facing a culpable homicide trial.

Oscar Pistorius's older brother was involved in the crash five years ago in which 36-year-old motorcyclist Marietjie Barnard died.

State witness Anton Coetzee was again called to the stand because he was driving alongside the victim on the night of the accident.

Coetzee said Pistorius's bakkie swerved off side of the road, causing Barnard to crash into back of it, damaging the tail light.

However, Pistorius's lawyer Kenny Oldwage argued that Coetzee's memory of the incident was fading.

He asked him the colour of the bakkie that Pistorius was driving and Coetzee was unable to answer correctly.

He then argued it would have be impossible for Barnard to hit Pistorius's tail light as her bike was simply too low.

Oldwage then showed an image of a skid mark on the road that indicated Barnard had time to break and argued she had been speeding.

The case continues.
