Australian road rage results in median strip brawl

An astonishing case of road rage on a street in Newcastle, Australia is doing the rounds on social media after it was caught on camera.

In the video, three men and a woman are seen getting out of two cars and engaging in a two-on-two battle on the median strip in the suburb of Sandgate.

It's believed that one of the two vehicles was driving erratically and swerving across lanes.

Things came to a head when they pulled up alongside each other at a set of traffic lights.

"Just the way they acted in the cars was ludicrous," witness CJ van Rensburg told Fairfax in Australia.

"Once they stopped and got out of the cars and started brawling, I thought yeah, it's some road rage thing going on."

The brawlers had disappeared by the time police arrived.
