An accident

On Monday when I was returning home from school, I saw a large crowd grouped in the middle of the road. So I ran there and joined the crowd. A lorry had knocked down a small boy. A kind man ran to telephone for an ambulance. A few minutes later the ambulance arrived followed by a police jeep. The ambulance took the injured person to hospital. The motorist told the police that in order to avoid a dog which had run into the road, he swerved the lorry to the left, resulting in the accident. After the police left the scene the crowd dispersed.
