Monster truck accident - level 1

Monster truck accident - level 1

07-10-2014 07:00

There is a motor show in the Netherlands. An accident happens there.

People watch a monster truck driving. It is a big machine. It has really big wheels. It is very powerful, too. It drives over six cars. However, it does not stop afterwards. It drives into the people who are watching.

Two people die. Another 18 are injured. They go to hospital. An ambulance helicopter flies there to help them.

Difficult words: wheel (every car has four of them), afterwards (after), injured (have problems with the body).

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

Whose fault is this?
