    sent...fleeing = sen (them).. to escape?

    Context:

    Word of Mr. Xue’s death brought the villagers into the streets and sent members of the village committee that was involved in the land negotiations fleeing.
    Mr. Xue’s 21-year-old daughter, Xue Jianwan, said before the service that her father “was a straightforward man who always stood up for people.”
    “Mom said that if he hadn’t been such a straightforward person, he probably wouldn’t have ended up like this,” she added.

    It caused them to run away.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
