Video Captures an Extreme Case of Tire-Squealing Road Rage

A driver was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon in connection with the bizarre case of road rage in North Hollywood


A San Fernando Valley intersection was filled with tire smoke and rage Monday in a bizarre car-to-pickup confrontation that was caught on camera.

In the video taken Monday at Victory and Laurel Canyon boulevards, a driver in a white BMW sedan can be seen pushing a pickup through an intersection. The BMW's driver's side door was open and part of its dislodged front bumper was dangling as its shrieking rear tires created a cloud of smoke at the busy intersection.

The BMW then crashed into the side of the pickup in a crunch of metal as the two continued down the North Hollywood street.

The rims look like Alpina's but I'm not an expert, maybe the comment was based on the rims. I can drive with my doors open on all my cars.

I believe you can't drive reverse with door open.

Anyway nothing that coding can't fix

You can if you have the seat belt on. I learned this when I got a nail in the tire but wasn't sure where and had to play the back up game.

The B7 doesn't have M-sport package bumpers like the one in the video. Rims aren't Alpina either for that matter.

That 7 series really moved the truck, seemed like it had no issue doing so. I think BMW should take advantage of this and put it in it's next ad.

Almost looks like the truck was running the red light? I'm really curious how this all started

According to Carscoops, the truck did a hit and run.

The LAPD responded with a tweet 12 hours later.

The citizens of LA know the town is lawless, just look around, or listen to the mayor.

Apparently it all started with the truck driver casually poking fun at the Bimmer after yesterday's plexiglass logo launch and shitty M3 leak.

Complete speculation here. But if I had to interpret what I'm seeing here. The F150 ran a light, hit the BMW and then tried to run. BMW driver is trying to stop the guy and not let him flee. I dont see assault, I see trying to stop someone from fleeing the scene. Now if the F150 driver stepped out to address the accident and the 7 series driver was so angry he tried to run the guy over... that'd be a different story.

Of course this is all predicated on the assumption that the F150 caused this and tried to flee. And if so, I hope the 7 series driver beats the charges. Fuck people who drive without insurance, cause havoc and then run. 7 series driver a hero in my book.

-If my premise is accurate. lol
