While some appear to be helping the crash victims, others are clearly running off with their valuables.
South Africans really could not believe what they were witnessing. Check out some of the reactions to the jaw-dropping video below:
"People are hungry."
"Really… that's not an excuse any more. Some people are just criminals."
"These are the very same people who were looting in JHB, the trauma that person is in and then people steal from you in an accident?! Ai abantu."
"There is simply no hope of ever living in a law-abiding country. Not while animals like this prowl the streets."
"And it's sad because it's black people doing this to other black people."
"I drove into JHB CBD last Saturday and I realised that most people who dwell on those streets are zombies, lost souls nje. I'm not surprised that the "victims' valuables" happened. It's very rare you will find true Ubuntu there. Sies."
"Looks like Polo was in the wrong, but i10 is in trouble as well because he ran. The rest of the video is heartbreaking really."
"South Africans have Ubuntu, they definitely help each other. What we see here... I don't see any South African."
"Police we need your help. South Africa has become a crime capital. Lord help us."
