    The truck loaded with biscuits crashed

    Would you please correct the mistakes in my sentence? Do you say "rushed out" or "outside"? I have used BrE "packet"

    The truck loaded with biscuits crashed close to the school, causing tumult among the students who rushed out to help themselves with packets.

    See above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    emsr2d2,
    Excuse me for asking again. I am wondering why "tumult" is not right in the above sentence.

    I would probably use "excitement" or "a frenzy" instead of "tumult", and I would say "help themselves to the packets".
