After the cars touched each other, the four men got out and, according to local media reports, beat up the driver of the black Tesla.

A real kidnapping on the street was looming. But the kidnappers didn’t get very far, because a friend of the victim had seen the incident and got into his white Tesla to pursue them. Again and again he rammed the Toyota with his Model 3 and blocked the road. When it was no longer possible to move forward, the driver of the escape vehicle put the vehicle into reverse again to escape, but here too the brave rescuer reacted quickly and rammed the kidnappers one last time before both cars came to a standstill.
