Angalia hii "avoid use of the term 'accident' to describe events that cause injury in an attempt to highlight the predictable and preventable nature of most injuries. Such incidents are viewed from the perspective of epidemiology - predictable and preventable. Preferred words are more descriptive of the event itself, rather than of its unintended nature (e.g., collision, drowning, fall, etc.)

Accidents of particularly common types (crashing of automobiles, events causing fire, etc.) are investigated to identify how to avoid them in the future. This is sometimes called root cause analysis, but does not generally apply to accidents that cannot be deterministically predicted. A root cause of an uncommon and purely random accident may never be identified, and thus future similar accidents remain "accidental."

Halafu niambie kwanini hili tukio liitwe ajali?
Ndugu "harakat", in response to your concern, i would like to give out two definitions (actually according to Yahoo Answers) which can tell us whether it was an accident or just a "mihap". Then, latter on Swahili people will help to give us "a swahili term" which will be used to the incident like this.

1.Accident involves two things. That is collusion of two vehicles, one vehicle and pedestrian etc., and Mishap involves malfunctioning of one mechanism. Mishap is an incident. (For example: a boat falling into a lake, a bus slipping from a ghat section of a mountain are mishaps and not accidents).
2. Accident is an unexpected event. Mishap is avoidable if due diligence is exercised and if fore-casted effectively.
