Writing

Dear sir,

I am sorry to tell you that I had a small accident while I was driving on my holiday,but the car was hired from your company.

I hired the car from your company’s shop on the Shangda road last Friday. I began my travel in early morning on Saturday.That was a rainy day,so I drove the car slowly. Suddenly there was a car in the opposite direction came to me with a high speed! I changed my direction to keep away from it,but that car still crashed my car and then stopped five meters away from my car. The left back of the car was destroyed but not very serious .

I came out of my car to see the driver who inside that car,luckily there were no people hurt.Then I took some photos about the scene ,meanwhile I called traffic police and insurance company .

I feel so sorry about this event,and looking forward to your answer.

Yours faithfully ,
Margaret J
