Road rage never delivers a good outcome, as the driver of this Toyota Aurion sedan found out.

A dash cam video published on YouTube by Dash Cam Owners Australia, shows a road rage driver in a Toyota Aurion – the V6 version of the previous two Toyota Camry models – crash into a fire hydrant and a power pole after an altercation with a ute.

The footage, which appears to have been shot in Melbourne, shows both cars approaching an intersection where the road is marked to merge into a single lane.

The Toyota Aurion passes the ute – which is fitted with a dash cam – on the left of the narrowing lane, which causes the ute driver to beep his horn.

The Toyota sedan is then seen to brake suddenly in front of the ute, at which point the dash-cam driver conveys some verbal frustration.

At the intersection, the Aurion starts to turn left. But when the ute driver beeps the horn again, the Toyota Aurion appears to brake-check the ute again, before changing its course and hunting down the ute.

This is where things take a turn for the worse – literally – for the Toyota Aurion driver, who appears to have misjudged the width of their sedan and how close it is to the nature strip.

Moments later, from the ute’s rear-mounted camera, the Toyota Aurion can be seen clipping a fire hydrant which launches it into a power pole, narrowly missing another car reversing out of a driveway.

The crash is serious enough to deploy the Toyota Aurion’s airbags.

It is not known whether any occupants of the Toyota were injured in the incident, but the short video clip should serve as a reminder that road rage never leads to a good outcome for anyone involved.
