MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Caught on camera: a former WMC Action News 5 employee found herself in the middle of road rage on Houston Levee Road in Cordova this week.

Nicole Harris was driving home Monday night in Cordova when she saw two Mustangs driving aggressively, so she got her phone out to take video, worried it would turn into something worse.

“I was trapped in the midst of it. A couple of times, the gentleman tried to get out of the car,” said Harris. “They were literally trying to push each other off the road and I knew something was going to happen. I didn't know that I would be in the middle of it but I knew something was gonna happen and I wanted to get video of it.”

After about two minutes of weaving across the lanes, she said the two cars stopped in the middle of the road. One man got out of the car, the other backed up and hit her car, cracking her bumper.  Shortly after that, he got out of his car, looked at her, got back in his car and sped off.

“As a woman, as anyone, that's scary, because people are crazy and you never know what's going to happen,” said Harris.

She says she called police but the officer said there wasn't enough damage for a report. She's frustrated that the person drove off.

“Despite the fact that we've got this video of these two men driving down a two lane road, driving recklessly,” said Harris. “In that instance it this could have been a completely different story.”

Police say if you are a witness to road rage, you should call 911. If you shoot video, you should pull over or find a hands-free device.  Harris said she knew it was dangerous to shoot video of the incident, but she felt like she need to capture it in case it resulted in a crash.
She hopes it reminds people to slow down, take their time and refrain from road rage.  
Police say no tickets were issued in this incident.
