Car goes very fast in LA - level 2

26-06-2013 14:00

A driver went very fast in his car in Los Angeles. For 45 minutes he tried to escape the police. He almost had a crash with another car during the chase.

Eventually the chase ended and the man stopped his car. He tried to escape on foot. But the policemen caught him and he is in custody now. He drove so fast that smoke was coming out of his car's engine.

Interesting words: escape (run away), chase (going after somebody), custody (time in prison before people go to court).

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