In related news, Briefly News previously reported that a video clip of a messy car accident has South Africans really traumatised. The fact that witnesses of the incident appear to be robbing the car crash victims certainly makes the clip more difficult to stomach.
Heading online, @crimeairnetwork shared the shocking footage. According to their reports, the incident happened near Johannesburg CBD.
A VW Polo collides with another vehicle at an intersection before skidding and turning over. The other motorist involved in the accident drives off while the passengers of the VW Polo are bombarded by a crowd of people.
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."
