Ice hits a car - level 2

Security cameras captured the moment a block of ice fell on a car. It happened on Friday in a northern Chinese city.

The SUV was traveling on a busy street when ice fell on the car. A large, icy mist spread across the street. No one was seriously injured, but the car was damaged. The roof was pressed inside, and the windshield was broken into pieces.

Difficult words: SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle – type of a car), mist (cloud), windshield (glass screen at the front of the car).

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