A motorist is in trouble after shooting dead a fellow driver after a fight over who arrived at a fuel pump first.
Motorist Shoots Driver Over Who Got First At A Fuel Pump
The two motorists approached Engen fuel station in Mfuleni, about 32 kilometres from central Cape Town in the Western Cape. They all seemed like they were in a rush to get served and hit the road.
However, as one of the motorists was about to drive onto the fuel pump to fill up his car, another driver tried to stop him. He argued that he was the one to get to the fuel station first and should, therefore, fill up first. The other motorist did not agree to this, and a fight ensued.
As they disputed over who got to the fuel pump first, one of the motorists whipped out a pistol and shot the driver. The other motorist died on the spot.
