Lucky grandmother and grandson - level 2
Two cars in Brazil collided and one of them hit a white parked car. The parked car moved towards a grandmother and her five-year-old grandson.
They tried to get out of the way, but there was no time. The pair were run over by the white car. All of this was captured by a security camera. The two victims were immediately taken to hospital. They were lucky. They were not injured seriously.
Both motorists involved in the accident blamed the lack of traffic lights.
Difficult words: collide (hit), run over (hit somebody with a vehicle and drive over them), lack (when there is nothing).
