The term crash is becoming more prevalent and is being taught as the proper description of the event. Crash investigation doesn’t imply that it was accidental as many layers seem to want the term of accident to imply.  In CT it is called a “Connecticut Uniform Crash Report”. I have to put my vote in for “crash”!  In regards to the earlier question/statement of running off the roadway – if there is no damage then it is not a crash, if there is any type of “harmful” event, regardless of how minor it may be then it would be considered a crash.
