car wreck


Senior Member
Hi guys.. I was wondering... is car wreck the same as car accident?

...if you are hurt in a car wreck, then the insurance company might have to pay the doctor and/or hospital bills.

thanks in advance!

    Hi everyone,

    I get that "Accidente de carro/coche/auto; un choque" all mean basically the same thing, but is "accidente de carro" an English transfer of some sort, or would you still expect to hear it in a monolingual environment?

    Thanks in advance,
