The employee was demanding his salary when he was tossed out of a moving vehicle.

A man was arrested on Monday afternoon, April 17, after the victim told the police the man almost killed him following an argument over money in Ekurhuleni, Boksburg Advertiser reports.

“The victim apparently asked the suspect, his employer, to give him his monthly salary. The employer then told him to get into his car to go for a drive. While driving at high speed, the suspect then allegedly opened the passenger door and pushed the victim out of the vehicle,” explained Boksburg police spokesperson Sergeant Cebisa Maseko.

The victim suffered injuries when he hit the tarmac.
