Driver jumps from a bus - level 2

Driver jumps from a bus - level 2

13-08-2013 06:00

A bus in China was backing up on a motorway as it missed its exit. The motorway looked empty, but suddenly a truck slammed into the back of the bus.

Passengers were thrown around the vehicle as it turned over. The driver of the bus fell out of the open window. But he was quite lucky. He didn't die, as well as no one on the bus. The truck driver, however, died instantly.

Difficult words: back up (go back), as (because), slam (hit), instantly (immediately).
