Woman Hits a Police Car – level 2

30-05-2016 07:00

Police pulled over a 23-year-old woman for speeding. Sheriff’s deputies found out that she was also driving without a valid driving license or insurance. They were about to impound her car when she backed into the police car.

She injured three people – the two deputies and her mother, who was a passenger in her car. The young woman is now facing up to 43 years in prison.

This is not the first time the woman has been in trouble with the law. She also did not come to court earlier this month for a different case.

Difficult words: deputy (an assistant), valid (actual), impound (to take legally).

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