Then a man with her is seen extending his arm in a Nazi salute.

The woman who posted the video to Instagram says their car was struck by the other couple.

She wrote, "Today on my 25th birthday I was a victim of racism and so was my boyfriend who is black. We were being harassed for miles."

It's not clear if anything initially triggered the exchange.
