CRASH: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "crash"

This sign is "very loosely" based on "CL:3" type handshapes.  But if you observe the sign done at high speed during signed conversations you'll notice that the handshape starts more as a "modified 5" handshape that turns into an "S" shape.




Sample sentence: CAR ACCIDENT-crash HAPPEN WHY? (Why did the car accident happen?)




Another variation:





Sample sentence: GARY FRUSTRATED LATE WORK. WHY? HE CAR ACCIDENT. (Gary is frustrated he is late to work because he was in a car accident.)


Notes:  See: CAR
