Dancing car - level 2

Dancing car - level 2

Chinese security cameras captured a very dangerous situation on a bridge.

A truck was passing over the bridge in east China when the driver noticed that he was too close to the vehicle in front of him. He braked hard and jerked the steering wheel to the left. The truck lost balance. It started to move from side to side and turned over in the end.

The driver wasn’t hurt. His passenger was fine, too. They were lucky that the truck didn’t fall from the bridge. Accidents like that are really serious.

Difficult words:

capture (film)

brake (make the lorry go more slowly or stop)

jerk (move quickly and suddenly).

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