An accident is better defined as an unexpected occurrence, which is less predictable with no apparent or deliberate intent but its effects which are mostly negative being felt deeper. The negative aftermath of an accident is one which can be prevented if only one would by any chance have prior knowledge of the circumstances leading to the accident, because this is hardly achievable, accidents are defined as unpredictable external actions which have marked negative effects.
A Fatal Accident
Walking down the lane back home from school, I witnessed the most grotesque site in my whole life. It was Friday afternoon and the weekend was just around the corner, it had been a long day and I was slowly trudging back home when all of a sudden in a lightning flash, I heard sharp screeches from car wheels.
Shocked, I raised my head to have a look at what was happening, this is when I saw what I now wish I had never seen at all. A young girl slightly older than me and who was probably a house help was crossing the road when the highly speeding saloon car gave emergency brakes. The girl also shocked her life out, was unable to move either way and she stood astound in the middle of the road. The saloon car driver swerved right but most unluckily the girl did the same and when the driver swerved left, confused she again did the same.
I watched the gruesome sight helplessly unable to make something change for the positive, the car under that height of confusion knocked down the girl skinning her life out of her beautiful body. Blood ran down from the poor girl’s body and in fifteen minutes, the ambulance service got to the scene, the paramedics tried saving the girl’s life but to no avail, too sad she was already dead and gone.
This is a clear description of an unexpected occurrence which if anyone person would have had prior knowledge of the possibility of happening, proper measures would have been put in place to prevent such eventuality. Because none had knowledge of such occurrence, there was therefore no way of effectively preventing it, this I why it is referred to as an accident.

Read importance of roads
One rainy day last year, while I was returning home from Mersing, a town in the east coast of Malaysia, I witnessed an accident which I shall never forget.
I was returning home in my father’s car. It was raining heavily and the road therefore could not be seen clearly. My father, an old man, was driving slowly to avoid an accident. The journey seemed longer than usual, which made me begin to feel tired.
All of a sudden, a small car ran at great speed, overtaking us. My father was shocked at the recklessness of the driver of the car. We could not count the number of persons in the car, but were sure that there were at least five, including two children. My father at once predicted that tragedy would befall the occupants of the car. After the prediction, I began to grow impatient. I did not wish to see any horrific scene resulting from accident. Although the car had gone quite far away from us, its rear lights could still be seen.
In the distance, there was a narrow bridge. Looking at the way the car was running, I too was now sure that an accident would come.
A lorry was coming from the other side of the bridge. It was already on the bridge. The driver of the small car, however, could not slow down in time. He lost control of the car which skidded and plunged into the river. Somehow, the driver managed to slip out of the car. The others however were doomed. When we arrived at the bridge, we were touched deeply by what we saw. Two children were struggling in the river and we could do nothing to save them. Their mother, as we came to know later, was at the bottom of the river, trapped in the car. They were swept away by the rush of the current and drowned. The driver, father of the children, began to cry piteously because of the death of the wife and children. He had lost them so suddenly.
It was indeed a very touching scene that I shall never forget.
A frightful accident I have seen
Notes:Saw fast running car – Soon car hit tree – Caught fire – driver hurt – could not open door – heard frightful screams – Fire grew bigger – No more screams – Driver burnt to death – Felt very sad – Cannot forget accident.
One evening I saw a car running at great speed. I knew at once that it would soon be involved in an accident.
As expected, the car had not gone very far when it went off the road and hit a tree. At once the car was on fire.
The driver was hurt so badly that he could not open the door of his car. Then I heard some frightful screams.
By now a big crowd had collected round the car; but no one could help the unfortunate man in the car. It was dangerous to go too near to the burning car.
The fire grew bigger. There were no more screams. The driver was burnt to death. I felt very sad after that. Indeed I cannot forget the accident.
