Jake lucha para tomar la decision correcta.

-Tenemos que irnos de aqui. No podemos hacer nada. Ya hay gente ayudandolos y llamando a la policia. Lo unico que podemos hacer es buscarnos un problema.
-!Dale! !Vamos!
Comence a mover el carro. Tenia un ojo en la carretera y otro en el espejo retrovisor tratando de ver el accidente. Vi luces rojas intermitentes en la distancia. Por un momento quite el pie del acelerador. Entoces lo pise hasta el fondo, gane en velocidad e hice una izquierda.

Jake has finally got his driver's license, and tonight he has his brother's car as well. He and his friend Mickey take the car out and cruise the strip. When they challenge another driver to a street race, a disastrous chain reaction causes an accident. Jake and Mickey leave the scene, trying to convince themselves they were not involved. Jake finds he cannot pretend it didn't happen and struggles with the right thing to do. Should he pretend he was not involved? Or should he go to the police?
