This incident happened in the middle of a street in Moscow, and someone filmed it on camera.

Two cars stopped at a crossroad. They were standing in a line. A man left the first car and approached the second car. He spoke to the driver and started to go back to his car. However, he never made it inside. The second car sped up and hit the man. The two cars almost crushed the victim.

The aggressor then stopped to look at his car. He got back inside and drove away. Police investigate the incident.

Difficult words: approach (come to), speed up (start going quickly), victim (somebody who is attacked), aggressor (person who attacks).
