Police car hits a car – level 2

01-09-2014 07:00

A car was going the wrong way on a motorway in England. A 77-year-old man drove the car. He has dementia.

The car was a great danger and police had to do something to stop it. They decided to hit the car with their police car. The manoeuvre was a success and the car stopped. The driver of the car was uninjured. One police officer was injured a little.

Difficult words: dementia (illness of the brain and memory that tends to happen to older people), manoeuvre (skilful movement).

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

Do you agree with the move of the police?
