A real-life car chase is something that you rarely come across in South Africa (SA). So, it is always exciting when brazen criminals find themselves being the mouse in this ‘Tom & Jerry’ scenario.

The context of the video you’re about to watch

The short clip you will see below was recorded from the dashcam of a police motorcycle that was in hot pursuit of a bakkie that was hijacked.

According to crime reporter Yusufu Abramjee, the footage was taken a few weeks ago on the R80 highway just outside of Pretoria. At this time, it’s not confirmed if the white bakkie being chased was the stolen vehicle in question.

One thing we know for sure is that the team of police officers, comprised of SAPS’ flying squad and airwing support, was tasked with stopping the bakkie in its tracks and arresting whoever was in it.
