Videos of hijackings in South Africa are becoming commonplace, but a recent one showed a different perspective.
A truck driver was busy driving his vehicle with two other gentlemen when shots were fired against their window.
Two hijackers storm into the vehicle and start driving away, with the 3 occupants being forced to stay seated.
Along the way, the hijacker experiences an issue while driving the vehicle and they force the truck driver to take the reins.
The hapless driver is forced to drive the men to their desired location as one of the men is clearly armed and dangerous.
Intelligence Bureau SA shared the video via Facebook and Briefly.co.za noted the viral reaction.

Ngconde Togu Umtshana WamaQocwa commented, “In situation like these it is very vital to stay calm and follow the orders of the criminals because whatever stock that is in that truck is insured, remember we only live once and our live are not insured only our funerals that are insured. I don't blame the worker's n it's easy for the spectator to analyse the game from outside because he/she does not having a pumping adrenalin.”
Emada Najaar said, “Ngconde Togu Umtshana WamaQocwa ...UNEXCEPTABLE. We must suffer for these crimes, not the insurance, This LOOTING must stop.”
Bridget Reynolds added, “Shocking that people have to go through this experience. Can these guys not be identified from this footage? How brazen that they do this and get away with it.”
Romanov Mikhail Trotsky said, “This is clearly an inside job. If you look at the driver assistant sitting in the middle, he bears resemblance to the hijacker holding the gun. The two look like siblings.”
