A road rage incident in Sydney’s west involving at least a dozen people has left one person reportedly injured.
The incident was captured by witnesses on mobile phones, showing a group of men and women surrounding a car as they allegedly punched, kicked and climbed over the vehicle.
In the video, which has been described by NSW police as “disturbing”, one person can be seen grabbing a windshield wiper to smash through the windscreen.
Another man climbs onto the windshield and kicks at the glass.
The incident allegedly began about 8pm (AEDT) on Wednesday after a verbal argument between the driver of the Lexus and another man in a McDonald’s car park on Orange Grove Road in Liverpool.
Police say that is when the 22-year-old driver of the Lexus and his two male passengers left the vehicle, and a physical altercation began between the driver and another man.
When the fight ended, the Lexus drove away and was stopped a short time later at a nearby red light.
Police say up to a dozen men and women ran towards the Lexus, and began kicking and jumping on the car, causing significant damage.

The men were able to drive away from the scene and reported the incident to police immediately.
Detective Acting Inspector Adrian Alston described the vision as “unacceptable”.
“The video speaks for itself, I would find it unacceptable for that sort of thing to happen, I find it quite disturbing as a matter of fact,” he said at a media conference, according to 9News.
One passenger suffered minor facial injuries from shattered glass, 7News reported.
Police are now hoping to speak to those involved.
Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a report online.
