Both suspects were taken to hospital under police guard, after attempting to hijack a bakkie on Friday night. Two hijackers were injured after being involved in a shootout with police in Verulam, KwaZulu-Natal on Friday night.

Arrive Alive reports that the suspects hijacked a white Toyota Hilux bakkie from Cato Manor, which had a tracking device installed.

During the chase, suspects opened fire on police, who retaliated. The hijackers lost control of the bakkie and crashed into a median at an intersection in Verulam. They then attempted to flee on foot, while still shooting at police.
