Man is hit by three cars – level 2

02-12-2014 07:00

A man tried to cross a busy street in China, but a car hit him. He was on the ground. Only within ten seconds, another car appeared and ran him over.

Later, some locals saw him on the road and went to help him. While they figured out how to help, another car spotted them and stopped. Sadly, it stopped too fast and a car behind it hit it. As a result, the first car accidentally ran over the man again.

In total, three cars hit the man. A hospital treated his broken ribs and left leg.

Difficult words: run over (to knock a person down and pass over his body), figure out (to think about something/how to do something), spot (see).

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

Shocking, isn't it?
