Does anyone tell me the difference between these two sentences below? He was injured in the accident vs he was injured at the accident.
As for a non-native speaker, it seems to me these sentences are almost similar, except for one thing-preposition "in" and "at".
Is there any different shade of meaning?
"I saw him at the car accident scene." would be better than " I saw him in the car accident." I don't know the reason why the former sounds right to me. Anyway, if any native speaker would explain the difference, I would appreciate it.
