I had a fender-bender on the way to school at noon.

Today I saw a fender bender between a delivery truck and a school bus. It seemed as though no one was injured.

You must drive carefully when falling snow; otherwise, fender bender might happen.

Your car was scratched or had to be scrapped? Because fender benders aren't usually big enough to total your car...
