Car almost hits people - level 2

Manchester Police released a security camera video. It shows two pedestrians. They walk close to a main road.

A car loses control and smashes through some railings. The car almost hits the two people. Luckily, they are fine and only in shock.

The 21-year-old driver, however, suffered head injuries. Paramedics took him to hospital and his condition is stable. Police investigate the incident, and they would like to speak with the pedestrians.

Difficult words: pedestrian (somebody who’s walking), smash (break), suffer an injury (you suffer an injury when a part of your body is hurt).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
