Motorbike went very fast - level 2

13-06-2013 14:00

A motorcyclist drove very fast during a chase with police on a Californian highway. He drove dangerously between cars, sometimes only centimetres from them. He was too fast for the police cars but policemen on motorbikes got him.

He drove off the highway and he got on a dirt road. He had to go slower there but most importantly, there was nowhere for him to go. Before him there was an unfinished bridge and he could not get onto it.

He got off his motorcycle and he gave up to the two armed policemen. We don't know yet what led him to his actions.

Interesting words: dirt road (road made of hard ground), armed (with a gun).

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