A road rage clash was captured on video in New Hampshire and culminated in a man pushing a woman into the snow.
“People are insane nowadays,” Jennifer Needham, who filmed the incident, told CBS.
“You see her get out of her car. Storm up to his car. That’s when he got out and shoved her to the ground.”
Needham immediately began filming after she heard beeping, although she missed the beginning of the incident.
“I need to edit the fact that before I took my phone out to record, he was already out of his car at her window, she had only approached him after he got back into his car…I know nothing else. Not all factors are considered here just a little crazy to have witnessed it getting to this point,” she noted on Facebook after the video went viral.
“Everyone is always quick to judge the situation but nobody was there for the full thing, including me.”
Less than two days later, Needham’s video was shared thousands of times and viewed more than 185,000 times.
After the light changed, her boyfriend kept driving because he was trying to shield her young kids from seeing more of the madness unfold.
Police in Nashua identified both drivers, the broadcaster said, and are interviewing witnesses.
No charges have been filed as of yet.
But the man in the incident told WCVB said that the woman drove into his vehicle.
“At that point, she was crazy, so I turn around and I get back into my vehicle,” he said. “Now she’s getting out of the vehicle coming to my door, punching my window, and opening my door, what was I supposed to do? I mean I didn’t know if she was going to hit me, smack me, or what.”
The woman responded in an email and said the man intentionally backed into her, and when she went to his car to ask him not to leave, “He got out and shoved me so hard I lost my balance.
“At the end of the day, it’s unfortunate that it happened and I wish it didn’t happen that way,” the male driver said. “We were both wrong in that situation.”
