A DRIVER has been captured in a shocking road rage attack on a blind man and his companion after the man’s walking cane clipped the side of his car while speeding past.
The Audi driver is seen lurching to a stop, before racing out of his car in pursuit of the pedestrians, slapping one of the men’s head repeatedly on a street in Paris.
The footage, believed to have been filmed near Avenue Ledru-Rollin in Paris, shows a disabled pedestrian attempting to cross the road with the help of another man.
As the pair step onto the crossing, a large black Audi speeds past – clipping the cane of the disabled man on the front wheel arch.
Once the car has passed the men continue to safely cross the road.
But the Audi driver slows to a halt in the middle street and precedes to angrily approach the pair, shouting and with his hands raised.
Identified only as a middle aged man in a grey jacket, he quickly delivers blows to the blind man’s companion’s face.
