Australian man goes on rampage on Perth freeway

We understand traffic getting you down, but this is taking things to extremes. An Australian man went on an utter rampage during rush hour outside of Perth, on the country’s west coast, with his ten-minute conniption backing up traffic for nearly an hour on the Kwinana Freeway.

The incident kicked off after the 34-year-old crashed his Mazda pickup into a Volkswagen that was parked in the emergency lane. It’s not clear what prompted the wreck or the following fit, but the man then began running head-long into cars, head-butting windows, jumping from vehicle to vehicle and generally acting completely unhinged.

According to Nine News, several motorists attempted to restrain the man, and medical personnel were forced to sedate him before he’d calm down. He’s been transported to a local hospital for observation.
