The bus driver can be seen in the video punching and kicking the van driver to the ground. 

But the van driver is able to get back to his feet and continue brawling, gradually moving from the middle of the road to the footpath. 

One body blow from the van driver knocked the bus driver’s sunglasses – which had been in his shirt pocket – to the ground. 

Eventually, two brave witnesses stepped in to separate the pair and stop the fight.

Channel 9 reported that the bus driver was taken to the nearby St Vincent’s hospital to be treated for his injuries.

The investigation is continuing and any witnesses have been urged to contact authorities with statements and dash cam footage.
