Accidente means accident and coche, vehiculo, carro, and auto all mean car so you can pick which word for car is your favorite. 

 

Personally I would say something like "Recien yo estuve en un accidente por coche" (recently I was in an accident by car) or "Yo tuve un accidente por vehiculo" (I had an accident by car".

Thanks Mereloshn!

By the way, what does Mereloshn mean? I have been wondering for quite a long time :=)

A translation like this one may vary from country to country or, even, from person to person. There is not a wrong one or correct one:

1. accidente automovilístico  (the way "I would say it")

Los accidentes automovilísticos están aumentando en la ciudad.  (Car accidents are increasing in the city)

2. accidente de auto

Jorge tuvo un accidente de auto el mes pasado.  (Jorge had a car accident last month)

De nada linguaholic.  No problem.

 

My name is a combination of Mere, the word for mother in French, and Loshn, the word for tongue in Yiddish, so it's combining two languages to mean "Mother tongue".
