Man is hit by three cars – level 1

02-12-2014 07:00

This happens in China. A man wants to cross a road. A car hits him! The man falls on the ground. Another car comes. It runs him over.

Some people see the man. They want to help him. They stand above him. A car sees this and it stops. However, it stops too fast. A car behind it hits it. The first car moves and runs him over.

In total, three cars hit the man. They break his ribs and his left leg. He goes to hospital.

Difficult words: run over (to hit a person with a car and drive over his body), in total (in the end), ribs (a set of small bones around your chest).

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

Shocking, isn't it?
