Police are investigating a road rage incident which left a man with critical injuries in Point Cook.

Two cars collided on Saltwater Promenade about 8.15pm on Thursday,

When the two male drivers got out of their cars, they began arguing, which soon escalated to a physical fight.

One of the drivers, a 33-year-old Point Cook man, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries and is currently in a critical but stable condition.

The driver of the second vehicle left the scene in a blue or grey Ford Ranger XLT ute and was last seen driving north on Carrick Street.

Police have released an image of a ute similar to the Ford Ranger.

Police urge panel beaters and members of the public to keep an eye out for the Ford Ranger, which is likely to have damage to the rear and passenger side of the vehicle.
