A Capetonian woman’s quick thinking saved her from a hijacking and potential death on Monday afternoon.
Shocking video footage of the harrowing incident was shared via Facebook and shows the woman driving down Blomvlei Road in her black Mercedes Benz.
She was travelling from Hanover Park to Lansdowne towards Jan Smuts Drive.
At the intersection between the 2 roads, a white Hyundai i20 reverses as it blocks her off.
The panic-stricken woman then instinctively reverses into 2 cars and makes a u-turn.
The Daily Voice reported that an eye witness revealed that gun shots were fired at the Mercedes Benz with 1 bullet lodged in the door.
She then allegedly drove into the industrial area and crashed through a fence.
The Hyundai was then seen speeding away down Jan Smuts drive.
Lieutenant-Colonel Andrè Traut confirmed that police are busy investigating the incident.
