Woman drives into a shop - level 2

Woman drives into a shop - level 2

15-07-2013 14:00

An Australian elderly woman drove into a shop with twenty people inside.

The woman who is normally a good driver had problems in the car park in front of the shop. She was going backwards with her car and by accident she hit another car. She then panicked and drove straight into the shop.

Paramedics were called to the incident but no one was injured. The woman's family came to calm the confused woman.

Interesting words: elderly (old), car park (place where you park your car), panic (do something stupid because you're shocked), paramedic (person who helps but is not a doctor or a nurse).

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