Chocolate Highway – level 3

23-03-2023 15:00

After a truck carrying liquid chocolate overturned, it blocked a highway in Poland as it covered six lanes with 12 tons of chocolate. The truck driver went to the hospital with a broken arm, but no one else was hurt in the freak accident.

A policeman even said that oil stains are easier and quicker to remove than smeared chocolate, but people were able to clear the road using warm pressured water.

Difficult words: freak (very unusual), smeared (spread out over an area).
