Two security guards in South Africa avoided a potentially deadly heist after dashcam footage captured the men dodging gunfire in a high-speed chase.
The video clip showed the cash-in-transit vehicle taking multiple shots as the suspects tried stopping and robbing the armored truck. Leo Prinsloo, the driver in the video, is seen reacting calmly as the truck's windows are struck by bullets and he attempts to lose the hijackers by weaving through traffic.
While driving, Prinsloo instructs his partner to take out his rifle as he proceeds to evade the robbers. After a while, the gunshots discontinue and the security guards successfully dodge the heist. After losing the robbers, Prinsloo stops the truck and exits the vehicle with his rifle before the clip ends.
"The suspects fired several shots at the CIT vehicle in an attempt to stop it during a high-speed chase," said police spokesperson Brigadier Vishnu Naidoo. "The driver of the CIT vehicle managed to evade the robbers for a while but later stopped in wait for the robbers. The robbers fled without taking any money. No arrests have yet been made."
