An accident is something going wrong. Physical examples include an
unintended collision (including a person or object unintendedly falling, and
including a gun going off unintendedly or pointing in the wrong direction or
while unintendedly containing a bullet), getting injured by touching
something sharp, getting injured by not properly landing when jumping, etc.
Non-physical examples are unintendedly revealing a secret or otherwise
saying something stupid, forgetting an appointment, etc.
A bicycle accident, an incident in which a bicycle ride goes wrong, can
result in injury to the rider or another person in their path, and damage to
the bicycle or nearby things. In 1842, an accident occurred which has been
described as the earliest bicycle accident. Kirkpatrick McMillan, the
inventor of the velocipede (an early bicycle), rode his new invention for 40
miles from his home to Glasgow. On his approach to the city, crowds gathered
on the road and unfortunately Kirkpatrick collided with a young girl.
Although she was only very slightly injured, he was subsequently charged
with causing the first ever bicycle accident. The judge could not believe
Kirkpatrick had travelled the 40 miles to Glasgow in only five hours, but
after much explaining, he was allowed to return home.
Accident is a drama film from 1967, directed by Joseph Losey, starring Dirk
Bogarde, Stanley Baker, and Jacqueline Sassard. The running time is (105 minutes).
Attention: Contains spoilers
The story centers on a married Oxford professor, Stephen, who is
experiencing a mid-life crisis. The world changes for him when he meets
Anna, a beautiful young woman who is engaged to one of his students. The
young woman is forced to stay with the professor and his wife following an
accident outside of their home in which the student to whom she is engaged
was killed. While the Oxford professor believes that he is in control of the
events that will eventually lead to the destruction of his marriage, we soon
discover that Anna isn't so innocent. The crowning metaphor of the film
comes at the end when we see an unhurt Anna (in a flashback) crushing her
dying fiancˇe beneath her spike-heeled foot as she steps on his face while
trying disparately to climb out of the overturned car.
