collide

Here is my best explanation:

'hit' is the definition.

(colliding is a kind of hitting)

'dog biting daughter' is the subsidiary indication.

'dog' becomes 'collie' (collie is a kind of dog**).

'biting' is an insertion indicator (I've seen this in other clues).

'daughter' becomes 'd'.

'collie' placed around 'd' is 'collide'.
