An East Rand couple in Gauteng were victims of a group of men attempting to hijack their car. The switch was flipped on them sending their car flying. This vehicle owner was looking to teach these hijackers a lesson, and not just fight back.

It was Thursday night in Van Dyk Park and the couple were about to leave their driveway. A group of armed men forced them out of their vehicle.

As it would happen, the hijackers were unable to get the car in reverse. This is when the action all started. The hijackers then decided to head back to the getaway car, when the victim jumped back into his car. That’s when all hell broke loose.

The whole incident was caught on CCTV. Starting with them strolling back to the getaway car, and one of the men pointing his gun at another passing vehicle. And within seconds, the victim had put his car in reverse and came speeding out of the driveway. Moving quickly, one of the hijackers makes a move behind the getaway car. The victim continues on his path straight into the hijackers’ vehicle.

On colliding into the vehicle, one hijacker is seen thrown into the air before he quickly gets back to his feet. The victim then speeds away, giving the impression it was time for his escape.

But low and behold, before the hijackers can even get their bearings, the victim is back and this time slams into the getaway head-on.

Total taken aback, the hijackers flee in the veldt. To put the cherry on the cake, the police confirmed that both suspects were caught by the community and handed over to authorities.
