Honey on a road - level 2

A truck which was carrying 42 thousand pounds (19 tons) of honey overturned in Los Angeles last Monday.

The honey flowed from the truck onto the highway. Clean-up operation was launched and four lanes of the highway had to be closed. A tow truck also arrived to lift the crashed truck.

No other cars were involved in the crash, and nobody was injured.

Difficult words: overturn (get upside down), launch (start), tow truck (truck which moves other trucks).

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