Drivers in western Australia were shocked when a fellow motorist suddenly jumped out of his car and started headbutting other vehicles.

The incident happened during rush hour Monday on a freeway in Perth, and was caught on camera by several passing drivers.

"It was at about 7 p.m. I was heading down to Freeway South and all the traffic just stopped," one of the motorists, who gave only his first name, Jordan, told WAToday. "It was like the movie 'World War Z,' where the zombies just run into cars. He was exactly like that and I thought 'Oh sh*t, it's the zombie apocalypse.'"

The scene unfolded after the man crashed his car into an unoccupied Volkswagen sitting in the emergency lane, according to Perth Now.

He then got out of his car and began jumping on and headbutting other vehicles, according to several eye witnesses.

Police were called, and the man was taken to a local hospital for observation.

No word yet if drugs or alcohol were involved. The man does have a history of mental health problems, police told WAToday.
