Hi,
which word should I use in the following sentence, please?

I bumped into Jenny as / when I was crossing the street.


Is there any rule concerning the use of "as" and "when" in such sentences? Thank you in advance.

    As puts slight emphasis on the actual action
    When puts slight emphasis on the time.
