A security camera captured the moment a truck pushed a car 500 metres down a busy road in China. Luckily, no one was hurt.

The accident happened when the truck suddenly veered and hit the side of a white car. The car swung around 90 degrees and stop in front of the truck.

The truck driver said that he didn’t see the car so he kept driving. Onlookers waved at him to stop. The police said the truck driver was at fault. The damaged car will be repaired.

Difficult words: veer (suddenly change direction), swing (turn), at fault (responsible for the accident).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
