Money on the road – level 2

25-11-2021 07:00

On Friday morning, an armored vehicle was carrying bags full of money on a California, USA, highway. Suddenly, one of the doors opened, and some bags fell onto the road.

One and twenty-dollar bills covered the road, and drivers immediately stopped when they saw the money to grab it. Their cars blocked the road, and traffic completely stopped for two hours.

California officials asked these people to return the money. There were many videos of the event, and it was not difficult to find these people.

Difficult words: armored vehicle (a vehicle with a hard metal cover which protects it from guns and other attacks), bill (a piece of paper which is money), traffic (cars and other vehicles which move on roads).

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