    Default Fleeing hijacker ends up dead in front of funeral home

    A chase that started in eMalahleni involved a sequence of increasingly bad luck for the criminals, all the way to Bronkhorstspruit. A Ford Laser was hijacked by two armed men in eMalahleni, Mpumalanga, setting off a series of events that ended with one of the perpetrators being shot dead on the doorstep of a funeral undertaker, reports the Witbank News. The vehicle was hijacked on the morning of August 2.

    The suspects quickly attempted to get of eMalahleni with the stolen car, but Cyber Security officers doggedly pursued them. They were unaware a tracker had been installed in the vehicle. The criminals fired off a few rounds at their pursuers, who nevertheless stayed on their tail. The hijackers then turned the stolen vehicle off the main road at the Bronkhorstspruit-Groblersdal exit and careened into Rooth Street before attempting to escape into Kruger Street.

    They directed the stolen vehicle into an open field and jumped out of the still-moving vehicle.

    I am of a nation that would not allow that fear of death, of torture, of imprisonment, of exile or persecution should result in the perpetuation of injustice.

    They tried to disappear into the Bronkhorstspruit Forum office building complex, making the mistake of choosing an office block that houses both the Streeknuus and the detective offices of Bronkhorstspruit’s police force.
    Fail.
    I believe posters are recognised by their sig... so I made one.

    Looks like a series of unfortunate events for the hijackers. Who fits a tracker in an old Ford laser anyway?

    Indeed, hope the damage to the car is minimal.
