Car in a house - level 3

27-02-2014 15:00

A driver’s been taken to hospital after his truck crashed into an apartment in Arizona. According to local media, the vehicle almost ran into a couple, who were asleep inside.

The couple was sleeping on the couch when the vehicle hit the wall at around 2:30 in the morning, covering them in debris.

Officials say the pickup truck was travelling at 40 miles per hour when it smashed into the house.

The driver, who suffered minor injuries, was later arrested on driving under the influence charges.

Difficult words: local media (news from a specific place), debris (pieces of something that has been destroyed), smash (to hit and break into pieces), driving under the influence charges (he is in trouble because he drank or did drugs and then he drove a car).
