Lamp post hit a bus – level 2

A lamp post hit a bus that was travelling on a highway in China. It was all filmed by a camera in the bus. The driver who was injured got stuck under the lamp post but he managed to bring the bus under control. Then he evacuated the 26 passengers onboard and phoned emergency services. He was later taken in the hospital.

A camera at the front of the bus showed what happened. The lamp post was hit by another car on the opposite side of the road. Then it hit the bus.

Interesting words: lamp post (long piece of metal that supports a light in the street), stuck (blocked).
