Woman Hits a Police Car – level 1

30-05-2016 07:00

This news is about a young woman. She is 23 years old. She is driving. She is going too fast. The police stop her.

She has another problem. She has no driving license or insurance.

The woman does another bad thing. She drives into a police car. She injures three people. Two of them are policemen. One of them is the girl’s mother. The girl’s mother is in the car with her.

The young woman is in trouble now. She can go to prison for up to 43 years.

Difficult words: driving license (a card or a piece of paper which says that you can drive a car), insurance (when you pay money to a company so if you have an accident, the company pays for it instead of you), injure (to do something bad to somebody’s body).

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