He wanted to make a good impression, so he got a concussion.

Does this mean "he was concussed"? By a blow to the head? Does "impression" mean that he wished some other person? or persons? to think well of him?

Does this mean "he was concussed"? probably, but I have never encountered that word before and my dictionary is in my office. By a blow to the head? he did indeed suffer a blow to the head Does "impression" mean that he wished some other person? or persons? to think well of him? he wanted several persons to think well of him

Did he hit himself on the head? well, he suffered the blow to the head entirely through his own actions. But he didn't hit himself over the head with a hammer or similar implement, if that's what you had in mind. Was this blow to the head the result of some accident? yes, in that he didn't do it on purpose
