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 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. “
