When traffic was stopped at a red light, two men reportedly got out of their car to repeatedly kick and punch her car, accusing her of cutting them off.

The woman, who has not been named, told 7 News she then got out of the car to defend her four-year-old son who was in the back seat, when one of the men punched her twice in the neck.
