se heurter

The word of the day is (se) heurter.  It means to knock against, collide with, run into, entrer brusquement en contact.
  • Et juste avant de heurter le pilier du pont de plein fouet le mari répond à sa femme calmement, « J'ai l'airbag ».
And just before colliding head-on into the pillar of the bridge, the husband says to his wife calmly, "I have the airbag."
  • Sur le quai, les gens se pressaient et se heurtaient.
On the dock, people were rushing around and running into one another.

When you run into things, the impact hurts! Eh?
