    There is a major railway reconstruction project affecting a railway bridge beingundertaken just outside Anytown by Allerton Construction this caused majortailbacks on the road both in and out of Anytown. Ahmed, who was late for work,was becoming increasingly agitated. Watching the dashboard clock, he decidedto pull out of the main traffic queue and drive down the lane which had beencordoned off. The lane looked safe. He was unaware however that the repairswere to the support beams underpinning that section of the road. As he drovealong the lane various people shouted for him to stop. Ignoring these shouts hedrove on. The section of the road gave way under the weight of the car and thecar crashed through onto the railway track below landing on its roof and began toleak petrol.Emergency services were called. Prior to their arrival construction workers wentdown to the crash site to see what they could do. On arrival they could smell thepetrol and all but Sarah, one of the construction workers, backed off. She sentfor sand and began to cover the petrol leakage. During this process althoughthinking about the safety of the driver, she also began to realise that the petrolcould easily ignite and if this occurred she could be killed. This was a terrifyingthought. Just as Sarah completed scattering the sand the emergency servicesarrived. Rashid who was the lead fireman congratulated her on her quick thinkingand asked everyone to back away. At this point Ahmed began shouting for help.Rashid took the decision to assess the situation close up and moved to the petrolsoaked area. He got down on his knees to speak to Ahmed and when he did herealised Ahmed was his brother. Although taken aback he organised a successfulrescue. In the meantime a camera crew arrived and were filming the rescue.Rashid rang Ahmed’s wife Diana and informed her that Ahmed had been involvedin a car crash and to watch the news. This she did and was horrified. Sarah,Rashid and Diana are now all complaining of recurring nightmares, and in the caseof Sara and Rashid flashbacks to the event. Ahmed suffered a broken leg in theaccident and was shaken up.Advise Sarah, Rashid and Diana of any claims they may have and againstwhom.
