Just found out there's FAQ for Memento @ IMDB. This can be really helpful.

I guess the car accident story is wrong because it was told by Lenard, which is not aware of him being Sammy Jenkins. He remembers the Sammy Jenkins story from repetition (he has a "Remember Sammy Jenkins" tattoo), but because he thinks of it as a different person (an insurance case), he made up the reason for his condition - car accident, even though Sammy Jenkins is actually himself and the reason for his condition is the injury from the criminals assault in his bathroom.

It's weird, the car accident didn't fit the plot, however during one of the black & white parts Lenard says: Mr Samuel R Jankis, strangest case ever. He and his wife were in this car accident, nothing serious. The doctors find some possible damage to the hippocampus, nothing conclusive. Sammy can't remember anything for more than a couple of minutes. On the other hand, in the final scene Teddy tells Lenard: I'm the one that helped you find the other guy in your bathroom that night. The guy that cracked your skull and fucked your wife. So was there a car accident?
