The following are actual statements placed on insurance forms where the car's driver attempted to summarise the details of their accident in the fewest words possible. • Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have. • The other car collided with mine without giving any warning of its intentions. • I thought the window was down, but I found out it was up when I put my head through it. • A truck backed through my windshield and into my wife's face. • A pedestrian hit me and went under my car. • The guy was all over the road. I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him. • I pulled away from the side of the road, glaced at my mother-in-law, and headed over an embankment. • In my attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone poll. • I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached an intersection, a hedge sprang up, obscuring my vision and I did not see the other car. • I had been driving for 40 years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident. • The pedestrian had no idea which way to run, so I ran over him. • I was on my way to the doctor with rear end trouble when my universal joint gave way causing me to have an accident. • As I approached an intersection a sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before. I was unable to stop in time to avoid the accident. • To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the pedestrian. • My car was legally parked as it backed into the other vehicle. • I told the police that I was not injured, but upon removing my hat, found that I had a fractured skull. • I saw a slow moving, sad faced old gentleman as he bounced off the roof of my car. • The indirect cause of the accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth. • I was thrown from my car as it left the road. I was later found in a ditch by some stray cows. • The telephone pole was approaching. I was attempting to swerve out of its way when it struck the front of my car.
