Accident involved artist in our northern neighbour (5)


I believe the answer is:


I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'accident' is the definition.
(I know that prang is a type of crash)

'involved artist in our northern neighbour' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'artist' could be 'ra' (Royal Academician, member of Royal Academy of Arts) and 'ra' is found in the answer.
'northern' could be 'n' (abbreviation e.g. N. Ireland) and 'n' is found within the answer.
This may be the basis of the clue (or it may be nonsense).

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for prang that I've seen before include "Crash (slang)" , "Crash (a car, aircraft) (colloq.)" , "damage" , "Crash (a motor vehicle)" , "Plane or car crash" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
