Two men who taunted a 23-year-old woman as she drove along a Melbourne freeway say they are the victims of road rage, despite footage showing them laughing as they drove away when she crashed into a wall.
Kaysha Plant was on her way to work on Monday near Moorooduc, south-east Melbourne, when a P-plater and their passenger pulled beside her Toyota and shouted they wanted to ‘fight her’.
Moments later, she slammed into the barrier in a horrific crash that the men caught on camera.
After she crashed, the man filming was heard shouting ‘what the f***’ repeatedly as they burst into laughter.

One of the men involved posted on his now deactivated Facebook account, telling followers to ‘forget that [version of events]’ and that ‘she was the one who was tailgating us’, 7 News reported.
‘She came at us and had a mad go,’ he wrote. The man claimed Ms Plant ‘swerved twice’ and crashed on her own.
Earlier, Ms Plant had relived the horrific moment she realised she was going to hit the wall at speed.
‘To be honest, I didn’t know whether I was going to live or die. I had to accept my fate that something might happen,’ she said.
‘I just closed my eyes and hoped for the best really.’
She was in tears and had to look away when she was showed footage of the horrific incident.
‘I just hope that they are found and I hope that they are brought to justice because it’s just ridiculous,’ she said.
