Right or wrong?

Posted by Peter on June 11, 2003

Hi experts,

I wonder if the use of the following alternates are right or wrong. Would you give me a hand?

There was an accident. A man on the motorbike hit a stone and fell off (his bike) and lay on the ground. Jim ran to ask for/get help from the school, and a teacher hurried off/away/over with a box of medicine to look after the (injured) man.

By the way, what does "hurry over" mean? "Hurry over" as a phrase cannot be found in dictionaries.

Thank you.

Best regards

Peter
