Vernon, CA (WMC) -

A swinging helmet and a swinging hammer. Things escalated quickly on a Vernon, California street when a biker and a driver crossed paths. Video from a dash camera show it all go down. It's unclear what sparked the road rage, but the results are on on the video.

The video shows the motorcyclist walking up to the car, exchanging words with the driver, then punching the door. But things quickly get worse. The biker swings his helmet into the back windshield of the car, shattering it. 

As the biker rushes to his motorcycle, the trunk opens on the car. The driver jumps out, grabs something out of the trunk and takes a swing at the biker as he speeds away. Then it becomes clear the object he's swinging is a hammer.

The person who posted the video to YouTube as "Honest Citizen" writes, "emotions get heated quickly leading to a smashed windshield and swinging hammer! On 9/6/2016 at 4:16 p.m., I'm heading south on Downey Boulevard waiting to make left onto Bandini when I see this angry dude holding a motorcycle helmet walk over to this car in the middle of traffic then..."

According to the NBC television station in Los Angeles, the Vernon Police Department is scouring it in slow motion and will enhance the video, hoping to identify the license plate number of the motorcycle.

The Youtube user said he sent the video to local TV stations and the police. You can watch the entire video below.
