I join those who cringe at this neologism. Yes, language evolves, but it shouldn't evolve through the acceptance of ignorance and misuse. Yes, it is a back construction of "on purpose." But "on purpose" means you are on your purpose, or focused on something you intend to accomplish. I assume users of "on accident" don't mean they were focused on having an accident. Atrocious!
