Car is pushed 500 metres - level 3
This shocking CCTV footage captured the moment a freight truck pushed a car 500 metres down a busy road in China. Miraculously, no one was hurt.
The accident happened when the empty freight truck suddenly veered and knocked into the side of a white car, forcing the car to swing around 90 degrees and stop in front of the truck.
The driver claims he didn’t see the car turn in front of him and continued down the road in China’s Xinjiang region despite onlookers waving at him to stop. Luckily, no one was injured.
A police traffic report found the truck driver at fault and the damaged car is undergoing repairs.
Difficult words: freight truck (truck for transporting large amounts of something), veer (suddenly change direction), claim (say something which may be true or false), at fault (responsible for the accident).
