Yesterday brought us the fairly amusing low-speed Prius taxi chase, and Saturday afternoon brings us even more Prius hijinks courtesy of a road-raging driver in Hollywood.Matt Lazarus, also know as reddit user cynicallad, posted in the Los Angeles subreddit this ridiculous photo of a Prius backed up on top of another car. The driver of the Prius was "big time" road raging around 3 p.m. on the Hollywood Boulevard offramp of the 101 freeway and rammed the cars in front of and behind her, resulting in what you see. The passengers in the silver car "ran out of the car like extras in a monster movie," and were unsurprisingly upset but thankfully unharmed. Lazarus was in the car right behind them and, for a brief moment, actually thought the Prius would drop on top of him.

The Prius may have been in a minor fender-bender with the car in front of it, Lazarus tells LAist, setting off the driver. Thankfully, nobody was hurt in this whole ordeal and, as somebody who claims to work in insurance says in the reddit thread, her coverage probably won't take care of this.
