A CBC News crew was interviewing an Ontario police officer as a road-rage incident was happening right behind them.

CBC's Neil Herland was speaking with OPP Const. Graham Williamson about a fatal collision on Black Creek Drive in Toronto on a nearby overpass, but shouting interrupted the interview, which was quickly captured by CBC camerawoman Tyna Poulin.

"There's a road-rage incident, just right there," Herland told the officer, who quickly began yelling to intervene.

"Hey! Get back in the car," Williamson yelled.

"Both of you, grow up!"

The incident didn't come to blows, and eventually the two men involved got back in their cars and kept moving.

It's unclear what sparked the confrontation, though the two cars appear dangerously close together. 

Check out the full video from the incident in the video above.
