This news is from Arizona. Police drive on a highway. They are chasing a car. They are driving around 100 miles per hour (161 kilometres per hour). That is very fast. There is a camera in the police car. It films the chase.

Some men are in the car. They have marijuana with them. They have around 374 pounds (170 kilograms) of the drug. The marijuana is in big blocks. The men throw the blocks out of the car.

In the end, police make the car stop. The men try to run away, but the police catch them.

Difficult words: highway (big road where cars go fast), chase (to try to catch somebody), chase (the act of chasing somebody).
