14-01-2015 07:00

This happens in China. A truck is on a motorway. The truck is in a bad state. Its wheel gets loose. The wheel rolls on the highway. This is very dangerous.

A woman is on the highway. She is tired. She stops her car. She gets out. She does not know about the wheel. It hits her. She goes to hospital.

Difficult words: state (if something is new or old and how well it works), wheel (the round part on a car or truck that helps the car or truck move), get loose (to move away).

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