A man has been hit so hard with a baseball bat that it split in half during the attack.
The assault happened in Cheltenham yesterday afternoon, when he stopped his car in front of traffic lights at the junction of Princess Elizabeth Way and Orchard Avenue. A van behind crashed into the back of his car.
The 45-year-old victim got out of his car - a green Peugeot 206 - and approached the van behind to discuss what had happened.
It was at that point that he was assaulted by the van driver, who was leaning out of the window. The attacker and his passenger then drove off up Princess Elizabeth Way, eventually mounting the pavement and turning into Redgrove Road.
The attacker's van is silver with a roofrack and a ladder and/or pipes on the roof.
The driver is believed to be about 6’ tall, with ginger hair, of stocky build, wearing a black top with gold coloured writing. The passenger was wearing a similar top.
Later on, a van answering this description was seen driving erratically at Gallagher Retail Park.
Anyone who saw what happened should contact Gloucestershire Police on 101.

Police officers have released CCTV images of a man they are tracing after a man was shouted at and beaten on a train from Birmingham to Cheltenham.
A 41-year-old man from Bath boarded the train at Glasgow Central at 9.25pm on September 2. At Birmingham New Street, another man got on board and sat directly behind the victim.
During the journey, the second man began shouting intimidating comments at the passenger in front, before getting up and punching him several times in the face.
"This would appear to be a totally unprovoked and particularly violent assault, which left the victim suffering facial injuries as well as being shocked by the man’s behaviour.
“Fortunately this type of incident is rare on the rail network, but this is a very serious offence and it is vital that we trace the person responsible.
"We are now in a position to release these images of a man that we believe will have key information about this incident.
“I would ask anyone who recognises the man to come forward. Although he got off the train at Cheltenham Spa, he boarded at Birmingham New Street and we believe he was intending to travel to Bristol, so it may be that he has connections with both of those cities.”
