Read the following dialogue carefully. After that, say whether the statements below are right or wrong. If they are wrong, correct them.
Caroline and Marcus are on their way home from school.
Marcus: Oh, what a day. I was shocked when I got my Maths exam back.
Caroline: Mine wasn't good either. But that was no surprise to me. I'm lost when I think about Maths.
Marcus: Keep your chin up. Maybe we can learn together for the next test.
Caroline: Sure, that would be great. Oh, look!
Marcus: Oh no. What a crash. I hope nobody is hurt badly. The green car was so fast.
Caroline: Yeah, and the motorbike didn't have a chance. The driver tried to move to the left, but it was too late.
Marcus: I can't see an ambulance or the police. Maybe we should have a closer look.
Caroline: I will make an emergency call. We can't do that alone.
Some minutes later, Tredegar Road is crowded with an ambulance, two police cars, and a lot of people.
Marcus: Look, Caroline. A rescue helicopter is coming.
Caroline: I haven't seen anything like that before. I suppose that's because the biker has bad injuries.
Marcus: Maybe we should talk to the police officer. We were the first people who saw what had happened.
Police Officer: Oh, come on, kids. I don't have any time for you now. Please go home.
Marcus: Sir, we saw the accident.
Police Office: Oh, really? So, let's get away from the scene of the accident. Then you can tell me.
Caroline: It was shocking. We were on our way back from school when there was that horrible crash. The green car was far too fast.
Police Officer: What about the motorbike?
Marcus: I think he was at normal speed. He tried to avoid an accident, but he didn't have a chance. What about the people?
Police Officer: The car driver is okay, but he is shocked. He said he was sorry about it all.
Caroline: And the biker?
Police Officer: I can't tell you exactly, but he will be taken to hospital. I think he has a broken leg, but he will be okay after a while.
Caroline: Oh, thank you.
Police Officer: No, thank you. You are the heroes of the day.
Caroline: Heroes? We?
Police Officer: Yes, you are. You called us, didn't you? Sorry I didn't realise that straight on and tried to send you away.
Marcus: Oh, you were only doing your job.
Police Officer: Alright kids, you cannot do any more here. We will look after the drivers. Thanks again.
Marcus: Goodbye, sir.
