Train accident in Quebec - level 2
A long train which carried oil derailed in Canada on Saturday. The oil exploded and the fire spread over 30 buildings.
Thirteen people have died so far. Everybody is hoping that the number will not change. The police said that 50 people are still missing. There is little chance of finding anyone. This is the worst accident in Canada since 1998 when a plane crashed and 229 people died.
The investigators are looking at the train and trying to figure out what happened. There could be something wrong with the brakes.
Interesting words: derail (accidentally leave the tracks), chance (possibility), figure out (understand), brakes (thing that makes the train go slower or stop).
