[WATCH] Chilling Road Rage Horror in Kranskop: VW Van Crushes Nissan Bakkie Into Business

Michael Hawthorne

In a disturbing turn of events, an alleged road rage incident took a potentially deadly turn in Kranskop, KwaZulu-Natal, as a man behind the wheel of a VW Van intentionally rammed a Nissan 1400 bakkie, folding it in half like a fresh slice of bread. The shocking spectacle unfolded outside the Kranskop SPOT-ON Liquor Store, and what makes this incident even more unsettling is the presence of a uniformed police officer who witnessed the entire episode.

The incident, captured on video and originally posted to TikTok, has garnered widespread attention, accumulating over 2183 comments in the last 24 hours. The video reveals a man daringly risking his safety by running across the path of the raging VW driver as the van relentlessly slams into the Nissan bakkie not once, but twice. The footage concludes with the folded bakkie pushed halfway into the business through security gates, and the VW van, seemingly taking a considerable distance, apparently attempting to deliver a third blow before the video ends.

The exact date of the incident is yet to be confirmed, but preliminary information suggests it may have occurred on Friday, 12th January 2024. As of the time of writing, the police have not officially confirmed the incident, leaving several crucial questions unanswered.

The public is eager to know whether the driver of the VW has been apprehended and if legal proceedings have been initiated. The motive behind the man’s violent outburst remains shrouded in mystery, and concerns about the safety of those involved linger. Has anyone been injured, and have any suspects been taken into custody?

Commenters on social media platforms are actively seeking answers, particularly questioning how such a brazen act of violence could unfold in the presence of a uniformed police officer. Many seem bewildered by the lack of official confirmation from law enforcement, while others view the incident as a bizarre VW Transporter vs. Nissan 1400 boxing match.

Despite the shocking nature of the video, some spectators appear unfazed, with a surprising number praising the VW Transporter for its durability in the face of the Nissan’s destruction. As the community awaits official updates from the authorities, the incident remains a topic of intense speculation and concern, raising broader questions about the state of road safety and public order in Kranskop.
