The following sentence is from the Diary of a Wimpy kid 3:
After swim practice, Rodrick would pick me up in his band's van.
I have two explanations for this sentence:
- Rodrick will use his band's van to pick me up. The preposition "in" means using something as a way or a method.
- Rodrick picked me up and let me stay in his band's van.
Which one is correct? How to parse this sentence?
