Parking is tough in L.A. and can drive anyone into a rage, but one recent brawl over a single space in a South L.A. parking lot turned into quite the spectacle, featuring cars ramming into one another, a sheared fire hydrant and lots of yelling.

The fight happened on Sunday in the parking lot of a laundromat and market in the 8400 block of South Western Avenue, according to ABC 7. Several witnesses caught portions of the melee from numerous angles. The video shows numerous parties already engaged in a physical fight that escalates when one woman gets behind the wheel of a white SUV and rams it into the open door of a silver SUV. After that, the drivers chase each other around in their SUVs in the parking lot.

"Like, for real?" one witness says.

Their impromptu demolition derby eventually exits the small, gated lot and spills out into the street, where the white SUV gives the silver SUV one more nudge before squealing away, clipping a fire hydrant in the process.

The LAPD tells LAist that a report was not initially filed regarding the incident, though now that they've seen the videos, they are working to identify those involved. LADWP was called shortly after the fight, however, and stopped by to fix the geyser spewing out of the broken hydrant.
