“I went to do some shopping at Retail Park and had my two-year-old son in the car with me,” said De Smidt.
“I was waiting in line with several other vehicles when I inadvertently blocked (his assailant) from getting out of a parking space.”
The irate motorist then started verbally abusing De Smidt and an argument between the two men ensued.
“He told me to pull over and he’d sort me out, which I did,” said De Smidt. “I walked towards him and got within three metres of his vehicle.”
By this stage the driver had already reversed his car from the parking space and was now facing De Smidt.
“I made a move forward and the next thing he floored the car and came at me like a bullet,” said De Smidt.
Desperately trying to get out of the way, De Smidt was caught on the side of the vehicle, flipped over the bonnet and crashed down, smacking his head on the tar. Dazed and suffering concussion, De Smidt struggled to his knees.
“By now (he) had stopped his car and returned to where I was in the parking lot. He came up to me and said ‘this is what happens when you f*** with me’.”
The assailant then climbed back into his car and fled.
