Car Turns Over – level 3

11-08-2017 15:00

A man in Maryland, USA was sitting in his car when it flipped over along with other nearby cars from a powerful wind.

A friend of the man described seeing something like a tornado coming. She hoped that the man would be OK, but she received a call from him a moment later only to find out that his car had flipped with him inside.

The man said that he was OK, apart from his foot being cut up. Meteorologists agree with the witness, saying that it was likely a tornado which overturned the cars, tore down trees and utility poles and damaged buildings.

Difficult words: apart (in spite of).
