Man is almost hit on a highway - level 2

A man was crossing a busy highway in China when two vehicles entered the crossroads from different sides.

The car and the truck tried to avoid an accident, but they hit each other and almost hit the man. The man was extremely lucky. The two vehicles hit just inches from him. He was almost crushed.

Nobody was injured but the accident heavily damaged both vehicles.
Difficult words: vehicle (something used for transportation), crossroads (a place where two roads meet and cross each other), avoid (when don’t want something to happen and you try to stop it).

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