Big car hangs over a bridge – level 3, A12

Left hanging, a truck skids over a guardrail in southern Brazil and dangles over a bridge.

The driver apparently lost control of the vehicle when a car stopped suddenly in front of him.

He was removed without injury by passers-by.


Interesting words: skid (when a car skids, it continues going but its wheels don’t move), guardrail (bar which is on the side of the road), dangle (hang).
