A viral video appears to show two men fighting in an intersection in Austin, the capital of Texas.

The clip was uploaded Monday on Twitter, and it was shared and retweeted en masse shortly after.

In the road rage incident, the two men are seen wielding weapons: One is armed with a metal baseball bat and the other man grabs a wooden plank from the back of his pickup truck. The plank-armed man swings at the other man’s baseball bat and a melee ensues.

After that, the man armed with the baseball reacts, hitting his opponent several times before the other backs off and the video ends.

Fox 7 in Austin reported the incident took place around 12:30 p.m. local time on Monday near Interstate 35 and Slaughter Ln.

Twitter user @NoelDeric uploaded the video, saying he was not sure what started the fracas, Fox reported.

According to Fox, the driver of the truck (armed with the wooden plank) forgot to put his vehicle in park and quickly goes inside to stop it from rolling.

No police arrived on the scene, and it doesn’t appear either of the men were seriously injured.

A spokesperson with the Austin Police Department said one person complained about the fight, but the two men left before police arrived, KEYE-TV reported.
