Here is news from Oregon, USA. A woman steals a car. Police want to catch her. They chase her.

The police cars and the woman drive fast. It is not safe. The cars cross a bridge. The woman stops on the bridge. She gets out of the car and jumps off the bridge. The river is really cold.

They pull the woman out of the water. The woman goes to hospital. She is not badly injured.

Difficult words: steal (take something and not pay for it), chase (follow somebody quickly and try to catch them), injured (have problems with the body).

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