Video Shows Houston Road Rage Turn Into All-Out Brawl and Demolition Derby
Getting out of your car to argue with another driver in the middle of a busy intersection is crazy enough, but a Houston driver took it to a whole other level of insanity Saturday morning.
*Warning: Graphic Language*
Eyewitness David Dao told KTRK-TV his daughter began filming as they approached the intersection of FM 1960 and US 290 and saw people arguing in the middle of the road. Dao said it appeared as if a truck had refused to let a sedan into a turn lane.
As seen in the video, these so-called adults were arguing when the white sedan inched forward. The driver of the truck reacted by speeding around, nearly hitting a woman who was his passenger.
The woman ran toward the truck as if worried about being left behind, then turned and approached the sedan. The passenger of the car threw a drink at the woman, so the driver of the truck approached the car and kicked the front grille, and that's when the brawl began.
The fist fight would have been stupid enough, but just as it seemed like the confrontation might be over, the driver of the truck intentionally reversed into the sedan, causing massive damage to the front end. He then sped away, and the sedan tried to give chase.
The Harris County Sheriff's Office told KTRK that no accident was reported at the intersection and it is currently unknown what happened the two parties after the confrontation.
"It's not worth it," Dao told KTRK. "At the end of the day, how much further are you going to get?"
