Can't fault the Casspir on this one. If he continued and went face first into that taxi (of course he was on the wrong side), that taxi and it's occupants would be non-existent right now.
It looks to me like the taxi driver didn't want to be caught behind that slow ass tazz and jumped into the wrong lane.Not sure how you arrived at that conclusion unless you've seen another video. It looked that taxi was taking evasive action to me.
The soldiers probably have a large alcohol stockpile.No people were seriously injured and an internal investigation is currently underway to determine the cause of the incident.
i watched it again, yes you are right.It doesn't look like it was the Taxis fault. It appears to slow down considerable as it saw the Caspir comming.
There appears to be a slip road which the vehicle in front of the Taxi took. That can be seen from the second photo on the link. That is not a road, but a slipway.
That Caspir was going much too fast and lost control.
Agree. Seems to be here: https://www.google.com/maps/@-31.5801911,28.7674937,3a,75y,176.52h,78.48t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1siA7pNAuXvnPX1pq5Fqxe_Q!2e0!7i13312!8i6656i watched it again, yes you are right.
Taking the lastest images at the best viewable angle:
Looked to me also like that taxi was coming down on the wrong side of the road. Those Casspirs don't go that fast and if they had not swerved they would have made a mess of the taxi - hope they catch that taxi.Watch – SANDF vehicle crashes next to petrol station
A video has surfaced on Twitter which appears to show an SANDF armoured vehicle crashing and flipping over next to a petrol station.
A partial date stamp in the top right of the video reads “2020-03-3..”, with the video being posted at 22:43 on 30 March.
In the video, which appears to be a recording of security camera footage from a Sasol garage, cars can be seen driving on a street separated by a median strip next to the station.
