PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS - The man charged with the murder of Plettenberg Bay local Alan Smit who died in an alleged hit-and-run incident earlier this year appeared briefly in the Knysna Magistrate's Court on 20 November, when the matter was postponed for the trial to start on 9 March next year.
Smit died on the N2 between Knysna and Sedgefield on 23 March after he was allegedly run over and the driver of the other vehicle sped away, according to reports.
A 47-year-old man was positively linked to the incident and was subsequently arrested.
Smit's family has been vocal about the case and started a hashtag #JusticeForAlan and a Facebook page.
His widow, Ashleigh Smit said the purpose of this was to ensure that no family ever has to go through what they have gone through.
