    following/resulting/occurring accident

    Unfortunatelly I don't remember the context in which that was used, but is one form more normal and intuitive to use than another? Which one?

    Actually the context might have been along the lines of "...the driver passed out and the following/resulting/occurring accident..."

    Re: following/resulting/occurring accident

    Maybe the driver passed out, and that resulted in a collision.

    The phrase "following/resulting/occurring accident" must be kept. I know the context I gave you is not very informative. So if ignored, which one of the three choice would make best couple with "accident" then?

    Perhaps:

    The driver fell asleep at the wheel and was injured in the resulting accident.

    Re: following/resulting/occurring accident

    'Pass out' is means to become unconscious. Is that what it is supposed to mean or the driver dozed off while driving?

    The driver dozed off at the wheel, resulting in an accident.

    I don't think I have directly answered that question. But I have indirectly answered it. (Paying close attention to why I say here will do you good.
