A bizarre scene played out in Bryanston on Monday, as two drivers in Bryanston locked horns in an apparent case of road rage. The altercation was reported just after 17:00, and it’s understood a firearm was used.
Bryanston road rage latest
Eyewitnesses say a motorist in a white Mercedes SUV shot a motorist driving a black Mercedes e250. It’s not yet been established what sparked the row, but one commuter has described how the aggressor “acted with impunity” when it came to dealing with the issue, and said he feared for his own life:
On the corner of Bryanston Drive and Homestead, the road rage unfolded. The victim was threatened and harassed by his armed counterpart, and was forced into the boot of the vehicle after being shot. From there, he went on a terrifying ride across town, and he was eventually dropped off at the Sandton Mediclinic.
One driver hospitalised, another in custody
The thug behind this attack also handed himself over to police in Randburg, confessing to this unsettling crime. As of Tuesday morning, the victim remains in a critical condition in hospital. Police are now investigating the strange set of circumstances that came so close to causing a fatality.
There are often violent clashes on the roads of Johannesburg, but it’s incredibly rare that we see anyone take things to such an extreme. No matter what lead to the incident, the reaction was totally uncalled for.
South African is an amazing place. Someone pisses you off in the traffic. 1. You shoot the guy, 2. You load him up in your car 3. You rush him to hospital 4. You hand yourself in at the cop shop. Four in one crime scene service.
