    Omission/Reduction Rule

    1) People who are injured and ahead of you
    2) People who are injured and who are ahead of you


    Both 1 & 2 gramatically correct and mean the same thing right?

    If so:

    "Be verb + adjective and be verb +adverb" can be reduced to be "verb + adj and adv (reducing the be verb for the second clause)?"


    Thanks in advance.

    Bearing in mind that neither 1 nor 2 is a full sentence, yes, they mean the same thing so "who are" can be omitted in the second part. You can also use:

    People who are [or have been] injured and are ahead of you ...
    Injured people ahead of you ...
