Train hits a truck - level 1
This happens in Texas, USA. A truck stops at a level crossing. The truck cannot go. It stops working. This is bad.
A train comes. The driver of the truck sees it and gets out of the truck. The train hits it. The train is pushing the truck for half a mile. One hundred gallons (378 litres) of fuel come out of the truck.
People must clean the place. It takes them hours. The level crossing is OK again.
Difficult words: truck (big car which takes big things, not people), level crossing (place where road and road for trains meet), fuel (you buy this for your car so it can go).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
