A cellphone video shows two men involved in an intense, cringe-inducing road rage fight in Hollywood.

The two men were traveling in a Toyota Corolla and a Toyota Avalon on Highland Avenue south of Hollywood Boulevard at about 9:25 a.m. on Monday morning. The witness who recorded the incident told KTLA that he was driving behind the two as they fought over a lane.

The witness said the man in the Corolla reached out his window and struck the side of the Avalon as both tried to get a spot in the same lane. Eventually, both drivers stopped and got out of their cars.

The video shows the Corolla driver approach the Avalon driver and then immediately begin hitting him, nearly knocking him into the path of an oncoming van. The Corolla driver then attacks the other man again, pummeling him before the man can get up.

The Corolla driver walks back to his car, jumping in just as a bystander runs over to him and punches the driver through the window of the Corolla. The Corolla driver flees the scene. The Avalon driver then gets up and back into his car.

The witness said that he saw a traffic officer nearby, who he assumed was taking down the men's license plates. The LAPD's Hollywood Division, however, said they had yet to receive any reports concerning the fight.
