Quiz Description

I was in a car accident earlier today (we're fine, the car's fine), and one of you wags asked if it would be in next week's news quiz. While the accident will likely make the police blotter in the town's weekly paper, no. But the question did inspire me to write this quiz about other car accidents, most (if not all) of a more serious nature and involving famous people.
