Dear (Name),

I want to apologize for the incident which happened last week. I took your bike/car as my vehicle was under repair and I had to urgently go to my parents’ place as my father had suddenly fallen ill. (Describe in your words). My mother had called me and asked if I could accompany her to the doctor. I was desperate to reach them and took your permission to use the bike/car. (Describe what actually happen). But it was unfortunate that during my return when I was parking the vehicle, a truck came from behind and hit the bike/car. It was all quite sudden and by the time I realized what happened, the damage was done. (Explain actual cause and situation).

It will take some time as I will take the vehicle to the garage to get it repaired. I feel sorry for the damage and the inconvenience caused to you because of all this. (Cordially describe your Apology and greetings). Please accept my apology. I hope it will not affect our friendship.

I am sure you will understand my situation and accept my apology.

Yours affectionately,

(Your name)
