Hungary rally accident – level 1

29-03-2024 07:00

A serious accident happens in northern Hungary on Sunday. A rally takes place there. A rally is a car race. Cars go fast over roads and difficult terrain.

One car goes off the road. It hits people who are watching the race. Four people die. At least eight people must go to the hospital. Two people are hurt badly. One of them is a child. Ambulances and helicopters arrive quickly. The race stops.

Police do not know why the car goes off the road. They must find out.

Difficult words: terrain (land or ground), arrive (to come to a place).

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

What measures do you think could be taken to prevent serious accidents like this from occurring at car rallies?
