Since Monday, four trucks were set alight in separate incidents. The motive was unknown.
Police spokesperson FC Van Wyk said a 43-year-old driver and his passenger were travelling from Klawer to Cape Town at about 12am yesterday, to deliver vegetables to a market, when they were forced off the road outside Moorreesburg by the drivers of two white Mercedes Benzes. Something was thrown at the truck, which started to burn.
Minutes later, a driver was seriously injured when a petrol bomb was thrown in his truck after he pulled over for a nap.
Another driver had a narrow escape after the drivers of two sedans forced him off the Piekenierskloof Pass near Eendekuil at about 2am. He was held up at gunpoint while the truck was set alight.
