I seriously doubt this has got anything to do with his father's car
accident. Yes it features a car and yes, it was written in 1926; that's in
no way conclusive proof that the poem and the accident have anything to do
with each other.

E.E. Cummings' father was killed in a road accident in 1926.

... a locomotive cut the car in half, killing my father instantly. When two
brakemen jumped from the halted train, they saw a woman standing dazed
but erect beside a mangled machine; with blood spouting (as the older
said to me) out of her head. One of her hands (the younger added) kept
feeling her dress, as if trying to discover why it was wet. These men took
my sixty-six year old mother by the arms and tried to lead her toward a
nearby farmhouse; but she threw them off, strode straight to my father's
body, and directed a group of scared spectators to cover him. When this had
been done (and only then) she let them lead her away.

Although I can see how people see this as a metaphor for sex (can't deny
it's what I thought...wasn't there a Led Zep song that used that metaphor?)
in light of this information and the date published, it's pretty obvious
what this poem was about.
