At least five people were caught on video in a horrifying road rage attack on Tuesday in which a man brutally attacked a woman in her vehicle.
Australia’s The Advertiser newspaper said the incident took place Tuesday afternoon in Lackleys, a suburb of Adelaide.
It’s not currently known what sparked the brawl, but video shows a woman being doused with water as she walks between cars stopped at a traffic light. She tried to take a photo of a van’s license tag and was attacked by the driver of the vehicle.
Other drivers exited their vehicles and tried to intervene. Police have asked any witnesses to come forward.
Authorities say that the best way to protect yourself in a road rage incident is not to exit your vehicle and keep doors and windows closed and locked.
“Don’t engage them in any form of conversation,” said Richard Butler of Australia’s Royal Automobile Association.
Adelaide is reporting an epidemic of road rage. A survey found that 88 percent of drivers in southern Australia have experienced some form of aggression from other drivers while on the road.

Sidney Powell’s ‘Kraken’ lawsuit suffers setback as Georgia GOP county chair demands to be removed
The Republican chair in Cobb County, Georgia said on Thursday that he wanted to be removed from Sidney Powell's election lawsuit because he never gave his consent to be included.
Powell, who was kicked off President Donald Trump's legal team, was criticized this week after she filed a lawsuit in Georgia that was riddled with typos.
Powell had previously promised that the lawsuit would "release the Kraken" in an effort to overturn President-elect Joe Biden's win in Georgia.
Justice Sotomayor pens scathing dissent to COVID-19 ruling: This ‘will only exacerbate the Nation’s suffering’
Justice Sonia Sotomayor blasted her more conservative colleagues for barring New York state from reimposing coronavirus restrictions on religious gatherings.
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4, in a late-night emergency ruling, that state officials could not reimpose limits on churches and synagogues to prevent the spread of the highly contagious virus, and Sotomayor penned a scathing dissent that was joined by Justice Elena Kagan.
"Amidst a pandemic that has already claimed over a quarter million American lives, the Court today enjoins one of New York’s public health measures aimed at containing the spread of COVID–19 in areas facing the most severe outbreaks," Sotomayor wrote.
Conservative rips GOP ‘turkeys’ for turning Thanksgiving COVID safety measures into a culture-war fight
Writing in The Bulwark this Thursday, Tim Miller says that America should be experiencing a time of national solidarity in the midst of a global pandemic. Instead, "we have a president whose focus is entirely on his effort to perpetrate a fraud on the American public."
According to Miller, Republicans are disseminating a narrative that says coronavirus restriction should be met with a sort of "organized resistance" from individuals and businesses that feel unfairly oppressed. While everyone wants to be with their families on Thanksgiving, "one thing that most people have learned by the time they are adults is that they don’t get to do whatever they want whenever they want."
