The California Highway Patrol is searching for a motorcyclist who was captured on video as he kicked a vehicle on the 14 Freeway in Santa Clarita on Wednesday and triggered a wild, chain-reaction crash that left one motorist injured when his truck flipped. The 22-second clip of the apparent road-rage incident has been shared thousands of times on Facebook.

The epic confrontation took place at South Bay, on New Zealand’s South Island on June 20, the New Zealand Herald reports.
