Violent road rage incident caught on camera

The incident occurred at a junction of the Northway in Portadown last Friday afternoon.

The video shows a man in a high-vis jacket chasing a red car on foot. When he reached the car he punches and kicks it, prompting the driver to get out and square up for a fight.

As the second man emerges from his car, he is visibly older and less physical than his rival.

The man in the high-vis lands a punch on the older man knocking him to the ground.

The fallen man staggers back to his feet and tried to continue the fight, but thankfully a group of other motorists got out of their cars to break it up.

The incident was reported to the police who are investigating.

A PSNI spokesperson said at: “The male driver of a car was allegedly struck in the face by the driver of an articulated lorry close to the junction shortly before 4pm.

“A 59-year-old man was subsequently treated in hospital for a cut lip. Police are now investigating the matter.”
