Driver made a mistake - level 1

Driver made a mistake - level 1

20-09-2013 06:00

A driver goes very fast with a train. There is an accident. It happens in Spain. A lot of people die.

The driver makes a phone call after the accident. He says that the accident happened. He says that he went fast and that it was his mistake. The driver says that the curve for the train is not safe, too. His bosses know it.

The driver has big problems now. But it may not be his mistake. Maybe other people make mistakes, too.

Difficult words: phone call (when you talk to somebody on the telephone), curve (place where the road goes right or left).

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