    Incident and Accident

    Dears,

    Below is an example -

    " While i was walking on the road, i struck to a stone and fell on the road and
    injured in leg."

    Here what action is incident and what an accident? Pl. elaborate.

    Kind Regards,

    Gulam Dastgir

    Re: Incident and Accident

    The whole event is an incident; the striking of your leg against a stone is an accident.
