· 每日跟讀單元 Daily English

Repeated reminders to fasten seat belts saved lives in a freak accident on the Tomei Expressway early June 10 when an out-of-control car came hurtling through the air and smashed into the windshield of a sightseeing coach with 47 people on board.

當1輛失控汽車在6月10日一早的東名高速公路上凌空呼嘯飛過與砸向1輛車上有47人的觀光巴士時,繫安全帶的重複提醒在這場詭異車禍中拯救人命。

Bus guide Umeyo Yamamoto, 60, said she advised passengers to fasten their seat belts on three occasions before the horrific crash that left the car on the roof of the coach.

60歲的巴士導遊山本梅予說,她在汽車落到巴士車頂上的可怕車禍發生前,三度建議乘客繫好安全帶。

"All of the passengers survived because we fastened our seat belts," Yamamoto said at a June 14 news conference here. "Unless we get into an accident, we never realize how important it is to fasten our seat belts."

「所有乘客都倖存,因為我們繫好安全帶,」山本在6月14日於此間召開的記者會上說。「除非我們發生車禍,否則我們絕對不會了解到繫好安全帶有多重要。」

The sightseeing coach, operated by Toshin Kanko Bus Co., departed Toyokawa in Aichi Prefecture at 7 a.m. on June 10 with 44 passengers.

這輛隸屬於東神觀光巴士公司的觀光巴士在6月10日一早7點搭載44名乘客從愛知縣豐川市出發。

The horror accident occurred 10 minutes later when the car appeared out of nowhere and smashed into the front of the bus after crossing the median, killing the car driver and injuring 45 people.

可怕的車禍在10分鐘後發生,不知從哪出現的汽車飛過中央分隔島砸向巴士前方,導致該汽車駕駛死亡與45人受傷。
