Driver tells the other guy to contact two people, which he texts them - you can clearly see that in the inside dashcam (kudos to that guy - not sure I could have typed a text while all that was going on).

From the follow up article we now know those two other people they contacted were not in the escort car as most of us assumed, but were in fact another armored car crew that left at the same time and were part of the same cash/valuables transfer. The driver was concerned that would also ambush the other crew and giving them a heads up.

Honestly, what would the point been of calling the cops? This would all be over in a few minutes either way. Waste of effort. And yeah, for all we know there was a panic button that was pressed to at least let HQ know they were in trouble.

The driver is a former police special forces sniper, and trains law enforcement how to shoot. I think these guys had everything under control. As the Task & Purpose article mentioned, he did exactly the right thing: He got out of the kill box (ambush) and then setup his own. The bad guys just weren't expecting any major resistance.

I really don't fucking care what the entire scenario was.
And yet you decided you should comment, odd...

From a quick skim of the video no where does anyone make a call.
The driver tells the other guy to call two names (which I can't quite understand), presumably the support team.

I love it when the bad guys were waiting up ahead to ambush him, and he just tries to run them over.

CIT heist
More info, the driver tells some of the story.
At no point did they even think of calling the police during the heist in the crime ridden country.

The various versions of this video make me wonder why there aren't more armed carjacking attempts on bank trucks in the US... the cops won't be there in time, in any country, you would think.

Of course a lot of the bank trucks in the US seem a lot more heavy duty than whatever these guys were driving, so that might be part of it.
I think you answered your own question. These guys were driving an up-armored Land Rover. In the US, armored trucks are custom designed and built from the ground up for this kind of work, and often contain gunports to let guards return fire. They're at least twice as heavy as that Land Rover due to the robust frame, powertrain, and armor.

1. There was a support vehicle traveling with the CIT truck. One of the support personnel was killed during the incident. Who’s to say that one of the support team didn’t call 5-O?
2. The whole thing was over in less than three minutes, exactly where the fuck in the world do cops show up in less than three minutes.
The driver was doing exactly what he needed to be doing and his gunner was doing exactly what he needed to be doing.
But feel free to second-guess it till the cows come home. :-facepalm-:
Yeah, I agree. I don't see how they could have done anything differently. There defense was perfectly executed.

I still find it utterly bizarre that they didn't call the cops or any sort of backup when this started.

They may have. These vehicles are all tracked via GPS and they might have panic buttons that they press when they get into situations so they don't have to fumble with the radio. They may have done so without it being obvious in the video.

As for backup, they were tailed by a second vehicle of security personal, one of whom became a fatality, apparently.

The driver does hand the cell phone to the other guy and tells him to call a specific person (at least I think that's what he was saying), but he never seems to get to the point where he is even waiting for someone to answer his call.

Amazing skills.
