Tailgating is annoying, but a group of four people literally could not handle themselves after one car attempted to overtake another in Houston on Saturday morning.
Rather than honk rudely and throw up a middle finger, the passengers in both vehicles (a white car and a truck) turned the traffic violation into a possible full-fledged accident, a roadside brawl and a car chase, in that order.
Here's what went down, according to an eyewitness who recording the whole thing on video: "When the white car proceeded forward, just a few inches, that aggravated the truck driver because he thought, 'Oh no you're not! You're not going in front of me,'" said David Dao, whose daughter recorded the video. The truck then drove up several feet, nearly hitting the woman. She was a passenger in the truck, but had remained outside the vehicle.
And that's not all. The woman is then seen going back to the white car and saying something to the passenger — who threw a drink at her! The video shows the truck driver coming back into view and kicking the white car's grille.
"I couldn't believe it. As soon as he kicked the grille, I was like, 'This is going down now,'" Dao said. "I was thinking this is going to be bad. At that time, I knew because there's physical damage now."
And then the fight broke out. The driver and passenger from the white car chased after the driver of the truck and began punching him. The female passenger from the truck is seen screaming and trying to break up the fight, but she gets punched in the face instead.
After the fight, things seem to calm down a little as all parties return to their respective vehicles — but, instead, things go into full-blown Fast & Furious mode and the white car tears down the highway with the truck giving chase.
No accidents were reported and hopefully no one was hurt any further.
