Police are appealing for information after an alleged road rage incident in Sydney's south-west left a man fighting for his life in hospital and three others injured.

Two groups of men in a Honda Civic and a ute were allegedly involved in an argument at an intersection of Henry Lawson Drive and the Hume Highway at Georges Hall around 10.45pm yesterday.

The ute allegedly then forced the Civic from the road and into bushland, where it rolled onto its roof.

The Civic driver, a 20-year-old man, and his passenger, a 17-year-old boy, managed to escape the car before being confronted by the second group of men.

The men from the ute then allegedly assaulted the pair, with the Civic driver stabbed in his left leg.

The ute then took off, driving north at high speed before colliding with a motorbike and a silver Toyota Camry.

The driver did not stop and continued travelling north along Henry Lawson Drive.

NSW Police Detective Chief Inspector Darren Sly said the incident was "something which our community just cannot stand for".

"It is dangerous. And that's why we're trying to seek systems of the public today to try and locate these men, and in particular the vehicle as well," Mr Sly said.

The 24-year-old motorcyclist is now fighting for life after being taken to Liverpool Hospital in a critical condition.

The male driver of the Toyota was also taken to hospital with chest injuries, along with the driver of the Honda - who remains in a serious but stable condition - after being stabbed.

The teenage passenger from the Honda was treated by paramedics at the scene for minor injuries.

"I actually just saw flashing lights through the blinds. I thought 'I wonder what's going on'. My wife said, 'I think there's roadworks going on'," witness Frank Abel said.

"And I thought 'not with all the police cars there'."

Henry Lawson Drive between Flinders Road and Tower Road was closed this morning as police examined the scene.

It took authorities about six hours to clear debris from the incident.

Police have appealed for public assistance to identify the men who may be able to assist with their investigation.

Anyone with information about the incident, or has dashcam footage, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
