    That's a sort of real-life sentence unfortunately.

    Hope they'll run out of gas (or is it fuel injection?)

    Getting run over is not good any way we look at it. I suppose the driver could've run over a dog. There has to be some way of showing what "run over" means.

    Know what I mean?

    I would tend to agree with what Francois says. It's reality.

    In American English we wouldn't say driving license. We say, driver's license.

    I must have been in a bad mood or something when I wrote it. It's very hard to write sentences thatonly have one possible answer- there's alwats someone who'll pop up with a different interpretation. I didn't mean any offence. ;-0

    By "driving license" do you mean a license that drives or a license to drive?

    Look at that! It's a driving license.
