Shocking moment a truck driver punches on with a tradie in high-vis during road rage brawl

Commuters were treated to a show in rural NSW when a truck driver and a tradie decided to settle their differences in the middle of the road.

The two men were captured throwing punches during a heated altercation at the intersection of Havanna Street and Sydney Road in Bathurst around 3.15pm on December 1.

In the video shared to social media jokingly captioned ‘UFC Bathurst’, the tradie, wearing a high-vis vest and black shorts, in seen standing over the truck driver battering him with his fists before wrapping his legs around the driver’s arm and executing a perfect ‘armbar’ manoeuvre.

The duo then face off in an intense stand-off, fingers pointed, after the driver is heard yelling ‘stop, stop! Get off [me]!’ 

Turning to the person behind the camera, the tradie yells out that the driver tried to ‘cut him off’ – with the truckie firing back, ‘he f***ing drove up the side of me!’

A New South Wales Police spokesperson confirmed emergency services were called to the location following reports two men were fighting in the street.

Officers attached to Chifley Police District attended and spoke to a 40-year-old man and were told he and another man were involved in a fight following a traffic incident.
