A bold driver is getting praise online for running over a robber attempting to hijack him on the highway.
Driver Trends For Running Over A Robber Trying To Hijack Him
The driver was driving on a yet-to-be-identified highway in the scorching sun with his dashboard camera active. As he weaved through the smooth tarred road, the driver approached an intersection with non-functioning traffic lights. The lights were flashing on amber, and all cars stopped before proceeding through the junctions.
A youngish man sat close to the traffic lights on the pavement parallel to the road. He was staring intently at the cars approaching the intersection. As the driver slowed down his car approaching the traffic lights, the young man lept to his feet and ran onto the road while also taking out his gun.
The robber ran in front of the car, signalling the driver to stop while pointing his firearm at the driver. The robber took advantage of the fact that the driver was behind a bakkie which came to a halt.
As the robber pointed his guy at the car, the driver instinctively steered to the left and ran over the daring robber. The car smashed the hijacker by the corner, throwing him out of its path. The driver did not bother stopping, and he drove away.
