In the test was a question: the correct answer was "la veille de l'accident.

Could you also say 'Le jour précédent l'accident?

This relates to:
When to use "demain"/"hier" vs "le lendemain"/"la veille" vs "le jour suivant"/"le jour précédent" -

It might be helpful if the difference in usage between “precedAnt” and “precedEnt” was spelled out and emphasised ....it’s easy to miss and the reason would cement it in the mind!  Thanks.
