Dashcam footage shows the moment bullets begin rattling against the vehicle – and how the driver remains mostly calm.
Dramatic dashcam footage has shown the moment a van carrying cash in South Africa was bombarded with bullets as robbers opened fire.
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.Advertisement
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.
