Hit dog biting daughter (7)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

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'.

This clue was last seen in The Telegraph

(Other definitions for collide that I've seen before include "Dash together; clash", "Come into conflict", "Smash together", "Clash; conflict", "Crash together" and "Run into".)
