Car accident resulting in death of driver and minor injuries of front passenger

Long-term lurker, first-time poster here wondering if anyone can help. I've been trying to find ways of wording this as a question in Google and am at a loss.

I'm trying to work on a history for my main character who lost her dad in a car accident. My character was in the car at the time of the accident, and came away with only minor injuries. While her father died, my character needs to have obtained a prominent scar from the accident that, ten years on, would still be noticeable. Ideally, this scar would be in the region of a shoulder and preferably she would have been sat in the front passenger seat. She was only seven at the time of the accident. The accident occured because the driver was distracted momentarily by her, but I have not yet decided whether that meant they crashed with oncoming traffic/hit a dip in the road/swerved off the road.

If anyone could provide various ways in which the crash may have played out for the consequences (father dead/scar on shoulder) to have occured, I would be really grateful.

Also, would it be possible for a second passenger in the backseat to come out completely unscathed?
