Austin Road Rage Leads to Violent Street Fight [Graphic Language]

Video has surfaced of two armed men fighting in the middle of Slaughter Lane in Austin.
The fight happened around 12:30 PM as cars were stopped at a traffic light near I-35 in South Austin. The video shot by Twitter user @NoelDeric shows one man approach a pickup truck and tap the window with a bat. The driver of the truck gets out and confronts the man, then runs back to put the truck in park. The driver of the pickup then grabs a pole from the bed of the truck and the two men start fighting.
The two men don't hold back, either. They take several violent swings at each other before leaving the scene. Neither appears to be seriously injured.
Police are investigating the fight as an incident of aggravated assault. The two men have yet to be identified.
