    I saw her crossing/cross the raod.

    1. I saw her crossing the road.

    2. I saw her cross the road.



    So, sentence 2 means 'I saw her cross the road from one side to the other'

    while sentence 1 implies 'I was her crossing the road for a second but didn't sure if she finished

    her crossing'
