This is the road-rage moment a lorry driver pushes an SUV with its wheels locked down the road as their kids sit captive inside and their panicked parents run alongside the vehicle.
The incident was filmed in Almaty, Kazakhstan’s largest city located in the south-east of the Central Asian country, and shared on YouTube before it was deleted.
But not before it had been picked up by local media, who reported how the angry lorry driver pushed the family’s SUV along a distance of 200 metres (656 feet) after apparently becoming embroiled in a row with the parents who had been driving the car with the kids inside.

It was unclear what had caused the lorry driver to lose his temper and drive off shoving the car in front of him. it was also unclear if he realised that there were two young children inside as he pushed it down the road, but local officials confirmed that the children were inside when the incident happened.
The black SUV has all four wheels locked while it was being pushed by the large red lorry, with the man and the woman, who according to the police were the children’s parents, running alongside in a panic.
The woman seems to be trying to climb inside and reassure the children inside, but it was unclear if she succeeded in bringing the confrontation to an end with her efforts as the short footage ends with the car still being pushed down the road.
At the end of the clip, numerous vehicles seem to be struggling to overtake the slow-moving obstacle.
An investigation into the incident is underway.
