Car and a Tank Hit - level 2

Car and a Tank Hit - level 2

05-06-2015 07:00

An 18 year-old German driver ignored another vehicle’s right of way and was so unlucky that the vehicle was a 62-tonne tank.

The driver of the tank could not stop it, but he managed to turn it so that the driver of the car was not crushed.

The damage on the Toyota was worth around 8,000 pounds. Unsurprisingly, the tank was not damaged.

Difficult words: vehicle (a machine like a car, bus, motorbike etc.), right of way (right to drive into a road before other vehicles).

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