  • Hi this is Tutor Nick P and this is Lesson 298. Okay. The title of today's

  • lesson is you don't say crash with. You say you crash into someone or something.

  • So you should always say that you crash into a person or into a thing , and you

  • don't just crash a thing as well. That's, that's another one that we cover here. So

  • let's look at the first example. Of course, with the X this is wrong. The

  • breaks of that taxi failed. Yeah. If your, if your brakes fail, it means you're

  • trying to use your brakes but they stop working. You know, if they kept

  • getting weaker and weaker and weaker and and one day they just won't work on you

  • at all. Then we say, they fail. So the brakes of that taxi failed. And it

  • crashed with a bus. No. You don't crash with somebody or something. You crash

  • into. So of course , the correct way to say it here was the brakes at that taxi

  • failed and it crashed into a bus. Okay., Let's look at number two. That taxi driver

  • was drunk and he crashed a lamppost. All right. Now this is a case where it's

  • not with you just say that you crashed something directly. You can't do that

  • either. So that's wrong. The correct way would be

  • to say that truck driver was drunk and he crashed into a lamppost.

  • He can't crash the lamppost directly. All right , and let's look at the last one.

  • This is with a person. I tried to run to catch the bus and I crashed with an old

  • lady, or I crashed an old lady. Both of those would be wrong. Yeah.. We can use it

  • with people. if as long as one person is running hard or running fast and they

  • hit the other person, especially if the person falls down. So of course, the

  • correct way to say it here would be I tried to run to catch the bus and I

  • crashed into an old lady. Okay. I hope you got it. I hope it's clear. Thank

  • you for your time. Bye-bye.
