Woman Hits a Police Car – level 3
A 23-year-old woman is facing up to 43 years in prison after she injured three people in this seemingly deliberate collision. Kavina Freeman from Milwaukee is accused of reckless endangerment, use of a dangerous weapon and fleeing the scene. Two sheriff’s deputies were injured in the incident as was Freeman’s mother, who was a passenger in the car.
According to reports, deputies were about to impound Freeman’s car for driving without a valid licence or insurance, after she was initially pulled over for speeding.
It’s not the first time this woman has been in trouble with the law. Officials told local media that Freeman failed to appear in court earlier this month for a different case.
Difficult words: deliberate (done on purpose), reckless (careless), flee (to leave quickly), deputy (an assistant), impound (to take legally), valid (legally or officially acceptable).
