Man Steals a Car – level 3

19-03-2021 15:00

Police in Ontario, Canada, are searching for a male suspect involved in a vehicle theft that nearly killed a car salesman.

Two individuals arrived to ask about a black BMW M4; however, it soon turned out that they weren’t really there to buy it, after one put the car into gear and started driving off. The dealership employee jumped onto the hood of the vehicle, as the suspect drove out of the lot, holding on even as the vehicle hit the main road at speed. As the car accelerated along the busy road, the salesman was flung to the ground and he was nearly hit by an oncoming car.

The salesman was taken to hospital and reportedly, he suffered lacerations to his feet after his shoes and socks came off during the fall.

The London Police Service is looking for the suspect’s accomplice driving a silver Audi and asking drivers for dashcam footage of the incident.

Difficult words: gear (a system of wheels that change the driving mechanism according to the speed), laceration (a deep cut on the skin), accomplice (a person who helps another commit a crime), dashcam (a video camera that is used to record the view of the road through the windscreen or windshield; a combination of the words ‘dashboard’ and ‘camera’).
