    dash

    Dear teachers,

    She dashed her brains out on the moor.

    Could you please kindly explain the meaning of the word dash?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Re: dash

    In this case, it means "slammed" or "crashed". She sustained a serious head injury.
