An "accident" is, by definition, unintentional. We accidentally drop our iPhone. The word also suggests something unforeseen- an event that couldn't have been anticipated or avoided, for which no one can be blamed.
93% of car crashes are due to driver error such as speeding, impairment, inattentiveness or distraction. The event should then be described as A CRASH DUE TO NEGLIGENCE which isn't as easy to overlook or forgive.
