A woman rides on a bike. She rides on the road. There is a level crossing and a train comes.

There is a barrier but the woman doesn't stop. She goes toward the road for trains. She gets closer and closer. She sees that the train is coming and she stops. The train doesn't hit her but it is very close. She is very lucky.

Police want to know who the woman. Police want to meet the woman. They want to talk about the dangerous situation.

Difficult words: level crossing (road for trains), barrier (long piece of wood or metal which stops you before the railway), toward (to), close (near), dangerous (not safe).

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