Car and a tank hit – level 1

09-08-2023 15:00

This news is from Germany. A driver makes a mistake. She does not give way to a vehicle. The vehicle is a tank. It is 62 tonnes heavy.

The driver of the tank cannot stop, but he turns the tank. Thanks to this, the driver does not die. She is OK. Only her car is wrecked. The tank was completely fine.

Difficult words: give way (to let other vehicles go into a road before you), vehicle (something like a car, bus, motorbike etc.), wrecked (destroyed).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What type of legal action might the driver who made the error face?
