Security cameras in China captured a shocking moment. The video shows somebody on a motorcycle who is close to a lorry.

The woman on the motorcycle gets too close to the lorry and collides with it. The motorcycle starts to burn. The woman and the motorbike are pulled by the lorry until the bike separates and explodes. The woman is on fire and jumps into nearby bushes.

Luckily, people hurry to help her. They put out the fire. The woman was moved to the hospital.

Difficult words: capture (film), collide (hit), separate (get away from something).

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