Man flies out of the car – level 2

10-08-2023 15:00

Someone filmed a shocking accident in Brazil. A pickup was overtaking a car at high speed and lost control. It flipped over around six times. Another car filmed the accident.

As the truck flipped, the crash threw the passenger out of the side window. When the truck finally came to a stop, the driver got out of the pickup and ran towards the passenger.

Luckily, the flying man survived with only broken bones. His condition was stable. There was little traffic along the road, so no other vehicles were in the accident.

Difficult words: overtake (to catch up with and  to pass; to get in front of), vehicle (a thing like a car used for transporting people or things).

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

What safety measures could be implemented on this road to prevent similar accidents from happening in the future?
