Lucky bus driver

This happens in New Mexico, USA. A bus driver drives without his seat belt. A pickup truck runs a red light. It hits the bus. Luckily, there are no passengers on this bus.

Both drivers go to hospital. The bus driver is lucky. The crash does not injure him seriously.

Difficult words: seat belt (a belt a person wears in a vehicle to keep him in his seat), run a red light (to keep going at a red traffic light), passenger (a person who travels on a bus).

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