Motorcyclist hits a man – level 2

12-03-2015 07:00

A pedestrian in London was crossing a road when the traffic began to move off at the lights. A motorcyclist hit him. The crash knocked the motorcyclist off of his bike and sent the pedestrian flying. A security camera captured the incident.

The motorcyclist got up, but instead of helping the pedestrian, he shouted at him and drove away. People took the 53 year-old pedestrian to hospital. Police are now looking for the motorcycle rider.

Difficult words: pedestrian (somebody who’s walking), send flying (to hit with a lot of force), shout (to say something very loudly).

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