As she tries to resist his sexual advances, he crashes the car and Jane goes through the windscreen. This causes a pile up – where another car is spun over – in which the male driver dies – and a lorry carrying drums of chemicals crashes.

As his pregnant wife, Lorna, arrives to see him in A&E, he dies.
