Doctor said that the female motorist was enraged when he overtook her vehicle on the road, ABS-CBN News reports.

However, he apologized immediately when she confronted him about it.

"Nagso-sorry na ako dahil talagang ayaw ko ng gulo. Nagpakumbaba na lang ako.

“Sabi ko, 'sorry po. Di po sinasadya, 'yung pangyayari. Sorry po,” Doctor said.

Despite the apology, the female driver allegedly continued to berate him for what happened.

Doctor then stepped out of the vehicle because he thought he was having a heart attack.

"Kaya ako lumabas ng awto, akala ko maha-heart attack ako. Buti na lang hindi natuloy," he explained.

The driver’s passenger, Luzel Pasaylo, also narrated what happened.

"Nagulat ako, bigla, may sumuntok na sa window. Nung masuntok, sinisipa na tapos pinapalapabas yung taxi driver.

“Tapos minumura na nung lalaki. Ako, that time, na-shock at natakot na rin ako.

"Lumabas naman ng kotse 'yung girl -- kasi siya yung nagda-drive. Akala ko aawatin niya 'yung husband niya. Nagulat po ako kumuha, siya sa compartment ng golf club.

“Hinampas niya po 'yung taxi nang dalawang beses. Ako mismo sa loob ninerbiyos.

"'Yung babae, pini-'P.I.' po siya. 'G**o,' sabi niya sa matanda. Sabi niya pa, kina-cut mo 'ko e.

“Kitang-kita kita sa dash cam kina-cut mo 'ko, kanina ka pa e. Di mo ba alam kasama ko 'yung dalawa kong anak.’

"Nakiusap po ako sa husband, kunin mo na lang 'yung plate number, magpapahatid na lang po muna ako. Tapos usap na lang kayo sa tamang lugar.

'Hindi po,' sabi ng lalaki sa 'kin. 'Pare-pareho po tayong maabala dito, ayaw ng asawa ko," Pasaylo narrated.

LTFRB is now looking for the woman in the video to get her side of the story.

Although many netizens have bashed the female driver, there are also others who urged the public not to pass judgment until the full story emerges.

The incident, which was caught on video and has gone viral, took place on Sunday, December 17.

KAMI is hoping that justice would be served in this issue!
