Money on the road – level 1

25-11-2021 07:00

It is Friday morning. A special vehicle travels on a California, USA, large road. The vehicle is full of bags of money. One of the doors suddenly opens. Some bags fall onto the road. There is money everywhere.

Other drivers see the money. They stop. They quickly get the money. Their cars block the road. Other cars must stop, too. They cannot move for two hours.

California officials must learn what happens. The FBI helps them. People must bring the money to the officials. The police have many videos. They know who these people are.

Difficult words: suddenly (when something happens quickly, and nobody expects it), block (to stop or make it difficult to move through a place), FBI (the US government organization which helps when someone breaks a US law).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
