The moment a woman smashes a van’s mirror with a hammer in a fit of road rage, with the driver seated behind the wheel, has been captured on camera.
The scenes were recorded from inside the van in the Mexican capital, Mexico City.
In the video, a woman can be seen walking up to the van from the front and she begins smashing the vehicle’s wing mirror on the driver’s side with a hammer, apparently after he had broken her mirror.
The driver does not seem bothered by the damage being done to his vehicle as he carries on smoking.
The hammer-wielding woman says: “I am leaving with my car broken, so you are going to leave with your car broken. I don’t care. We are now the same.”
The driver simply responds by calling the woman a “crazy old lady”.
The woman then swings the hammer inside the vehicle and begins hitting the indicator stalk before walking back to her car, which is stopped at a red light in front of the van.
The woman has been dubbed Lady Martillo (Lady Hammer) by people online.
One viewer commented: “The truth is that the lady seemed calm and she broke the mirror with style and didn’t say a single bad word”.
Another wrote: “Those reactions are generated by living in big cities every day. Urban schizophrenia”.
The identity of the woman is unknown. It is unclear if she has been detained or if any charges have been brought against her.
