A TEENAGE girl has been punched in the face in a vicious, unprovoked road rage attack on the Gold Coast this afternoon.
Ashleigh Carton, 18, was stopped at a set of traffic lights in 40C heat at Carrara when the attack took place.
Seven News reported a man with a child in his car allegedly pulled up behind Miss Carton, got out and without saying anything, delivered a coward punch.

“My window was down and I didn’t even know he was there until he hit me,” Miss Carton told Seven News.
Bystanders rushed to her aid, but thankfully she wasn’t seriously injured.
The man fled the scene, but Miss Carton managed to take down the vehicle registration number and give it to police.
Investigations into the incident are continuing.
