Called after parking accident (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

prang

Here is my best explanation:

'accident' is the definition.

'called after parking' is the subsidiary indication.

'called' becomes 'rang' ('ring' can be a synonym of 'call').

'after' says to put letters next to each other.

'parking' becomes 'p'.

'rang' put after 'p' is 'prang'.

(Other definitions for prang that I've seen before include "Crash involving a car", "Car accident, usually not too serious", "Crash (a motor vehicle)", "Crash (slang)", "Crash (a car, aircraft) (colloq.)", "Minor accident", "Plane or car crash", "Popularly, a motoring contretemps", "Minor shunt" and "Vehicle crash".)
