North West police have warned the public against taking the law into their own hands after two motorists were involved in a physical altercation following a collision at a petrol station. 

A video that has been circulating on social media shows a blue Mazda knocking into a parked Hyundai in Geelhoutpark, Rustenburg.

After the collision, the driver of the Mazda steps out of his vehicle to inspect the damage. 

While trying to find his bearings, the driver of the Hyundai approaches him and starts punching him repeatedly, until onlookers intervene.
