Notes to answerer
Asker: Hi Martin, Thank you for your response, but I can't accept the word "lorry" as it is strictly British. This is a translation with trans-Atlantic English, so I must put "truck". Can you please change your answer to "truck" so that I can grade you. You can probably put "lorry" in parenthesis.
