Swiss train crash - level 2
Many people think that the trains in Switzerland are very safe and efficient, and many Swiss people ride trains.
However, recently a commuter train and a high-speed train crashed near Zurich. Some parts of the trains came off the train tracks, but they did not fall over.
Emergency workers helped the people that were on the trains. The people that run the trains in Switzerland closed the part of the train tracks where the crash happened.
Difficult words: efficient (when you do something and you don’t lose time, money or energy), commuter train (a train for people who go a long way to work), train track (the two metal lines that trains run on top of).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
