Truck is too heavy for a bridge - level 3
A bridge crossing ends in disaster after a truck proved too heavy, causing the entire structure to collapse.
The small bridge which links a village in east China's Zhejiang Province with nearby towns collapsed in the early hours of Saturday morning after the driver said he took a wrong turn in the dark.
And to add to the problems facing locals as a result of the incident, the truck which was carrying metal rods to a construction site also damaged the main water pipe running beneath the bridge, cutting off the village's water supply.
And with the truck firmly wedged in the destroyed remains of the bridge, villagers are left having to navigate longer detours to cross the river.
Difficult words: prove (to be), entire (whole), rod (a long, skinny piece of something), construction (building), firmly (strongly), wedged (stuck), detour (another route).
