Police car hits a car - level 1

Police car hits a car - level 1

01-09-2014 07:00

This happens on a motorway in England. A car goes the wrong way. This is a dangerous situation. The police must do something.

The driver of the car is an old man. He is 77 years old. He has dementia. Police decide to stop his car. They stop it by hitting it with their car.

The manoeuvre is a success. The car stops. The old man is not injured. One policeman is injured a little.

Difficult words: dementia (illness of the brain and memory that tends to happen to older people), manoeuvre (special way to move something), be a success (go well).

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

Do you agree with the move of the police?
