More than 20 young children died in a bus crash in northern India. The tragedy happened when a truck full of sand collided with the school bus in the early morning. At least twenty-four other children were injured in the collision.

The police said that visibility was low due to dense fog. The children were between the ages of three and twelve and were travelling to school.

The state’s education authorities had closed all schools in the area due to cold weather and authorities need to find out why this school stayed open.

Difficult words: collide (hit), collision (a crash), visibility (ability to see), dense (thick).
