Writing prompt: Crash

Describe a car accident from three different perspectives: One driver as the accident happens, a witness immediately after the accident, and the at-fault driver a week later. How does the story change? How do different voices affect the narrative? Pay attention to sensory details: What sounds do you hear when the collision happens? What does the air smell like after the accident? What do the drivers feel upon impact?
