Hundred cars on a bridge - level 2

Hundred cars on a bridge - level 2

09-09-2013 14:00

More than a hundred vehicles crashed on a new crossing bridge in England. The accident was huge.

There was very thick fog and the drivers could not see well. In fact, visibility was down to 20 yards (18 metres). Witnesses said that they heard the screeching of cars' brakes. They also said that some drivers were driving like "idiots".

More than 200 people were probably injured. Some had to be transported to the hospital. Luckily, no one died in this big accident and no car fell from the high bridge.

Difficult words: huge (big), screeching (high unpleasant sound), brake (thing in a car that can make it go slower or stop).

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