Armored Truck Driver’s Crazy Escape After Highway Heist Is Straight Out Of An Action Movie – fr


Prinsloo’s experience is certainly put to the test in the attempted theft. Although the ordeal lasts only a few minutes, several shots are fired at him and his passenger, who is, literally, a passenger throughout the situation. Unable to retaliate and visibly unable to drive, there is little he can do except follow Prinsloo’s orders. He doesn’t look as cool under pressure as his coworker, but it can be assumed that very few people would. Besides YouTube commentators, of course.

Eventually the thieves are avoided and the truck carrying the cash, an armored Toyota Land Cruiser 70 Series, appears to get stuck. Shortly after the Toyota comes to a standstill, Prinsloo exits the vehicle armed with a semi-automatic rifle, an AR-15 specification. The clip ends after that.

The consequences of the incident were posted on twitter by Yusuf Abramjee. Prinsloo and his partner were unharmed, although the same cannot be said of the Land Cruiser. The Toyota gear lever sustained damage to its front bumper, many windows were damaged by gunfire and bullet holes appear to have made part of the way through the doors and the A-pillar on the driver’s side . This is, of course, a small price to pay for Prinsloo and his companion to make it out alive.

The thieves were driving what appears to be an Audi A5 Sportback, which suffered significantly more damage than the trusty 70 Series. In footage of the sequel posted on Twitter, the vehicle can be seen abandoned as a result of the attempted theft, its rear quarter panel and his trunk appear to have sustained significant damage due to Prinsloo’s defensive driving.

In a statement provided to SA Trucker, a spokesperson for the South African police said: “On Thursday 22 April a group of men attempted to break into a CIT vehicle on the N4 in Pretoria. The suspects fired several shots at the CIT vehicle in an attempt to stop it during a high-speed chase. “

“The driver of the CIT vehicle managed to escape the thieves for a while, but then stopped to wait for the thieves. The thieves fled without taking any money. No arrests have yet been made. “
