Phrases associated with a minor car accident

a few years ago I had a very minor car accident ( we might say ‘bump’ or ‘prang’ in UK) in a car park in Portugal. I find it difficult to translate to Portuguese.

How do I say:

  • he put his car in reverse

  • he reversed his car into mine (I might mis translate as literally inside of)

  • his car hit mine ( I might mistranslate as punched)


I’ve added some suggestions above, @Terryman!

That’s great, thanks Joseph
