Man confronts driver in a fit of road-rage and gets run over
A moment of road rage became a near-death experience for a man in Calcutta, India.
A passenger in another car captured the incident on video shared by Newsflare.
In the video, a man in dark shirt and pants can be seen yelling at a driver inside a car. He even pounds on the hood of the car with his fist while yelling in rage.
At one point, a woman can be seen trying to pacify the road rage attacker, but to no avail.

This, apparently, also sends the driver inside the car into a fit of rage. As the man walks over to the driver's window, the driver speeds away, sideswiping his enemy, who ends up on the bonnet.
The man falls off unscathed and tries to chase after the driver.
"The driver who is inside the car damaged the angry man's car, and the driver was not ready to pay for the damage caused by him. I was speechless when I saw it happen," the filmer was qouted as saying in the Newsflare report.
