newsNews24 reports that late on Tuesday police were still hunting down robbers who stole a large sum of money from a woman, before fleeing the scene and driving over a security guard in the parking lot of a shopping centre in Montana, Pretoria.  

Apparently, the woman had just drawn a large sum of money from a bank, before driving to the shopping centre.  She was followed to the shopping centre, where the suspects overpowered her and took her money.  As the robbers fled from the scene in their vehicle, a security guard tried to stop them, but they knocked her down and then drove over her.  Netcare 911 paramedics who responded to the scene found that the guard had sustained serious traumatic injuries, requiring advanced life support intervention to stabilise her.  She was then rushed to a hospital for further treatment.  Netcare911 spokesperson Shawn Herbst indicated on Tuesday that the guard was in intensive care, in a critical but stable condition.  Meanwhile, police are still searching for the suspects who are facing charges of robbery and reckless and negligent driving.
