Tom: Hey, did you hear about the accident at the office down the street?

Emily: No, what happened?

Tom: Apparently there was a collision between a truck and a car, and three other vehicles got damaged in the process.

Emily: That sounds terrible. Were there any casualties?

Tom: Fortunately, no one was killed, but a few people were injured and taken to the hospital.

Emily: I hope they'll be okay. Do you know what caused the accident?

Tom: I'm not sure, but I heard it was a case of reckless driving. The driver of the truck was speeding and lost control.

Emily: That's a shame. Was it covered in the news?

Tom: Yeah, I saw it on the local TV news this morning. They showed footage of the damaged vehicles and interviewed some of the witnesses.

Emily: Wow, that's crazy. I hope everyone involved in the accident makes a full recovery.

Tom: Me too. I'm just glad no one was killed.

Emily: Definitely. It could have been much worse.

Tom: I heard that the road was closed for several hours while they cleaned up the wreckage.

Emily: That must have caused a lot of traffic.

Tom: Yeah, it was a real mess. I'm just glad I wasn't driving in that area at the time.

Emily: Same here. It's always important to drive carefully and be aware of your surroundings.

Tom: Absolutely. I hope this serves as a reminder to everyone to be more cautious on the road.
