This happens in Moscow. Someone films this on camera. Two cars stop at a crossroads. They stand in a line.

A man gets out from the first car. He comes to the second car. He talks to the driver. He starts to go back to his car. However, he doesn’t get inside. The second car speeds up. It hits the man.

The second car then stops. The driver gets out and looks at his car. He drives away. Police investigate this incident.

Difficult words: crossroads (place where two roads meet), speed up (to start to go fast), investigate (try to understand what happened).

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