QCOSTARICA – A dispute between two tow-truck drivers on the main road to Escazu not only put in danger the lives of other motorists, but wound up in a violent road rage that escalated to an exchange of blows, a baseball bat, the ramming of vehicles and … well, watch the video.

The images were captured this weekend by a driver, from the Ruta 27 to the traffic lights at the Perimercados, across from Walmart – known as the radial de Escazú – and sent it in to Crhoy.com.

The situation “complicated” traffic, as what appeared stunned drivers, just stopped their vehicles to let the exchange occur, bus passengers and several pedestrians.

It is not known where the dispute originated or what triggered it.


PS, In Costa Rica, the old Toyota Landcruisers (original FJ40) from the 1970s and 1980s as the vehicle of choice for many tow-trucks operators.
