Police try to stop a car - level 1

07-10-2013 06:00

This happens in the USA. A car stops near the US Capitol. Policemen come around the car.

They have guns. The car drives away quickly. Police shoot at the car. Police catch the car and they kill the driver. The driver is a woman. She is a mother, too. There is a baby in the car. It is only one year old. The mother died but the baby is OK.

The police search the woman's house. The police don't find anything bad. The woman is not a terrorist.

Difficult words: shoot (try to kill with a gun), search (try to find something).

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