Car Hits People – level 3

14-08-2017 15:00

A camera caught the moment that a car rammed into a crowd of people in a town in Virginia, USA. The people were protesting a white nationalist march, and nineteen of them were injured while a 32-year-old woman was killed.

President Trump condemned the attack, the violent protests preceding it, and he called for calm. Police arrested 20-year-old James Alex Fields, Jr, from Ohio in connection with the incident.

Difficult words: ram (push strongly into), condemn (strongly disapprove of – say that something is bad).
