I HATE CAR ACCIDENTS. Well, who doesn't? A car accident is something that happens when your car bangs against a person, a tree, any other object or maybe just another car. Well, that’s a horrible thing. But we need to know certain important expressions which relate to car accidents. Here are some of them:
