More than 20 young children died in a bus crash in northern India. The tragedy occurred when a truck loaded with sand collided with the school bus in the early morning. At least two dozen other children were injured in the collision.

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

The state’s education authorities closed all schools in the district due to a severe cold wave and authorities need to investigate why this school had stayed open.

Difficult words: occur (happen), dozen (twelve), dense (thick).
