The Holden Astra was seen driving erratically behind a sedan before the Astra attempted to ram the car in front, incidentally mounting and flipping over before the driver exited the ruins with a knife
All cars in the area slammed on their brakes immediately after the Astra rolled onto its roof.
‘Oh my god, bet he regrets that,’ the person filming can be heard saying in a video obtained by 7News.
