A 21-year-old was indicted on Sunday for crashing into a car driven by a disabled driver in Bat Yam and then proceeding to attack the driver with one of his own crutches.
The defendant's detention in police custody has been extended by the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court.
The assault took place on March 9 and footage was shared by the police.
How did the assault happen?
According to the indictment, the assault started when the driver came out to try and exchange insurance details with the defendant.
In the footage, the defendant and her brother can be seen grappling with the victim and stealing his crutch before throwing the victim to the ground. The defendant then proceeded to repeatedly strike the victim with the crutch.
After assaulting the victim, the defendant and her brother drove away wildly with the victim still lying down on the street, endangering his life as cars continued to drive by.
Road rage in Israel
The violent incident comes amid renewed focus on repeated acts of road rage throughout Israel.
Many of these incidents turned violent and led to deaths, such as the stabbing of Yuri Volkov in Holon in November.
