The victims, now including 19 preschoolers and two adults, died when a nine-seat school bus illegally carrying 64 people crashed head-on with a coal truck in Yulinzi township, Zhengning, Wednesday morning. A further 43 were injured.
Parents of students at the kindergarten said school bus overloading has been a problem for years, despite repeated complaints.
With over 700 children, the privately-run kindergarten has only four vans. All seats have been removed so more passengers can be crammed in.
文中的school bus overloading即“校车超载”。“overload”可以作为动词，意思是“使超载，使负担过重”，也可以作为名词，意为“超载，负荷“。“超载的校车”英文就是an overloaded school bus。head-on作为副词，意为“迎面相撞地”，也可以作为形容词，如a head-on crash/collision。preschool/kindergarten均指“幼儿园”，preschooler即“学前儿童”。
