South Africa: Cash van driver evades armed robbers as vehicle shot multiple times

Saturday 1st May 2021 18:15 BST

The driver and his colleague are on an apparently uneventful journey when, suddenly, loud bangs can be heard.

The driver's door window has become a target and is heavily pitted, cracks in the glass radiating from a dark central point after bullets rattle against it.

The driver swerves and then corrects his course before asking his colleague to grab the large rifle they have in the cab.

"He's coming after us," the driver tells his colleague as the chase continues.

It is possible to hear the driver's breathing quickening but he remains remarkably calm in the circumstances as his driving allows them to escape the scene.

He takes a sharp right and says: "They're going to shoot. They're going to f****** shoot." Several more bullets hit the vehicle.

Handing a phone to his colleague, the driver says: "Phone Robbie, phone Josh. Ask them where they are."

A little later the driver stops the vehicle, grabs the rifle from his colleague, and gets out of the cab.

Yusuf Abramjee, who posted the video and stills on Twitter, said the driver and his colleague survived, according to website SA Trucker.
