AN embarrassing video has surfaced in which an attempted road rage incident is cut short as a driver bizarrely manages to hit himself with his own car.
The video shows the motorist stopping his car abruptly before someone honked their horn at him.
He opens his door and gets out of the car - but he forgot one crucial step - putting his car in park.
As he begins to walk towards the people who honked their horn at him, he is hit by his drivers side door as the car rolls backward.
The car continues down the hill, ploughing into the car behind him.
The man is dramatically knocked to the road with his feet up in the air before he manages gets back up.
The driver continued to argue with the people in the car behind him.
"You caused that," he told the couple in the car behind him.
The video was captioned with saying that he wouldn't go around the car because there were double white lines located on the road and it would have been illegal to cross them.
The video, which was uploaded to Facebook page Dashcam Owners Australia, had been viewed more than one hundred thousand times on Monday morning and attracted thousands of responses.
