Here is some shocking footage. A camera filmed it in Manchester and it shows the moment a car hit a boy.

The Honda knocked the 11-year-old boy to the ground, and then it drove away. Luckily, the incident was not fatal. The boy was taken to a local hospital. He was not injured seriously, and he missed only one day of school.

The police are trying to identify the driver.

Difficult words: footage (video), knock (push down), fatal (deadly).

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