Motorbike went very fast - level 1

A man on a motorcycle went very fast. He was on a highway in California. Police cars were too slow for him.

Two policemen on motorcycles were behind him. Their motorcycles were fast. The man drove from the highway onto a bad road. There was a bridge in front of him. This bridge was not finished. He could not go on it. So he stopped and the policemen got him.

We don't know yet why he did this.

Interesting words: motorcycle (bicycle with a motor), highway (big wide road).

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