Big car on a bridge - level 2

Big car on a bridge - level 2

21-05-2013 14:00

An unusual accident happened on a bridge in Australia. After an accident with a truck and a car, the truck hung on the edge of the bridge. It looked like a scene from a Hollywood action movie.

The truck driver had to quickly react after a car suddenly appeared in front of him. The truck started to roll and hit the edge. The driver was thrown out of the truck and he fell onto a road 15 metres under the bridge.

Amazingly, he survived and was later taken to the hospital. The truck on the edge was removed by big machines.

Interesting words: truck (big car), remove (take away).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
