"Tom was involved in an accident." (it means that either Tom has caused the accident or he is a victim. Am I correct?)
"Tom caused an accident." ( It means he commited the accident. Am I correct? I am not sure whether we can use caused or commit here.)
"Tom has done an accident." Is it correct?
"Tom has commited an accident or muder."
"There is an accident case registered in the police station under Tom's name."
Okay, but Tom caused an accident is correct. Am I right?

Bear in mind that Tom might not have been involved in the accident that he caused. Imagine, for example, that Tom runs across the road without looking to see if there are any cars coming. He might make it across the road unscathed but a car coming down the road at that time might swerve to avoid Tom but crash into a parked car in the process. Tom caused the accident but he wasn't injured in any way and he might have already run round the corner and been out of sight, not even knowing about the car crash that resulted from his irresponsible action.
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
