The incident happened Wednesday. In the video a white woman can be seen giving obscene gestures with both hands to the Black couple in their car, exclaiming "white lives matter (expletive)" and then "only white lives matter." 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.
Torrance police say they are aware of the incident and are looking into it.
