This news is from Taiwan. A plane takes off. There are 58 people on the plane. The plane has problems. Its wing hits a road.

A car is on the road. People in the car have a camera. The camera films the accident.

The plane then crashes into a river. Nineteen people die. The crash injures fifteen people. Now twenty-four people are missing.

Difficult words: take off (to get in the air), wing (a plane has two wings – they are two flat parts on the left and right), to be missing (we don’t know where they are, or if they are alive).

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