Bus Accident in India – level 3

01-08-2018 07:00

In western India, a bus was carrying 34 employees on a private picnic trip when it plunged off of a mountain road.

One man survived after jumping out of the bus before it fell into a deep gorge. People recovered a dozen bodies since the accident, and the rest are feared dead, too.

India has some of the world’s deadliest roads – more than 110,000 people die every year.

Difficult words: plunge (fall), gorge (a deep narrow valley), dozen (a group of twelve).
