DUTCH FLAT, California -- In Houston we`re no strangers to road rage, but in California, two young women got a terrifying, up close experience with one angry driver and it's all on camera.

On the video you can hear inside the car, "She keeps trying to hit us off the road...I`m #$%@ing freaking out. ...(screams)She just hit our car, she just hit our car."

The two friends were in a small Mazda, on Interstate 80 in Dutch Flat, California, and claim another woman driving a Ford Explorer cut them off. the passenger in the Mazda said she 'flipped off' the other driver, which may have made matters worse.

In the video, the passenger says, "She`s knocking on our window saying she`s a cop."

She was telling this to a California Highway Patrol dispatcher as her friend was trying to navigate away from the crazed driver.

'Dude, I don`t know what to &%$^ing. They`re telling us to exit, they`re telling us to exit - I can`t she`s standing in front of me.'

The CHP dispatcher instructed the terrified duo to take the next exit where a patrol officer was waiting.

"Go to the officer, go to the officer, go to the officer. Ok, ok... please, make sure he helps us, please, help us."

Deidre Orosco, the driver of the Explorer was tracked down and arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon. This, just hours after being released from jail on charges of a felony hit and run.

Fortunately, the cell phone video is proof in pudding.
