WATCH: A Cyclist Attacks Rideshare Driver In Busy New York City Traffic

New York City Police are searching for a bicyclist after he attacked a rideshare driver who jumped on top of his car in the middle of busy traffic.

It all started on New York's Fifth Avenue, where witnesses say the Lyft driver and the man on the bike got into an argument.

The Lyft driver then turned the car into a nearby street and got caught in traffic.

The bicycle rider followed him, then used a bike lock to smash the front and rear windows of the car, police said.

The 23-year-old driver managed to free himself from the car and was hit in the head by his attacker.
