china battle

Idle hands are the Devil’s workshop, as the saying goes. Now imagine those hands are on the throttles and control levers of heavy, wheeled machinery.

A street battle broke out in China’s Hebei province over the weekend, according to the Associated Press, one that saw members of rival construction companies go at it in large, front end loaders.

Going by the video, there’s some clear animosity between the two factions, both of whom were feeling the effects of a construction downturn. A simple knife fight wouldn’t do, so the street ended up littered with overturned vehicles.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing, a state official was quoted as saying.

To quote Ron Burgundy, “Boy, that escalated quickly. I mean, that really got out of hand fast.”
