Coach crashes in Japan - level 2
In Japan, a coach crashed. Fourteen people died and the crash injured another twenty-seven. The passengers were participants in a ski tour. The two drivers were among those killed.
The bus went on the wrong side of the road. It broke though a guardrail and moved metres down the mountainside.
We do not know what caused the crash. It was winter, but there was no snow or ice on the road. People are investigating the accident.
Difficult words: coach (bus used for longer journeys), ski tour (skiing across open country), guardrail (a small metal safety “wall” on the side of the road).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
