    road accident

    Some witnesses claimed that the boy shared the liability for taking place this accident. Because at its approach he had suddenly and unexpectedly started to run across the road. The incident happened so fast its driver had no rescue.

    Please say the relation "Because at its approach" to the rest of its sentence. Is the placement of "Because at its approach" right? What will happen if I write "driver had nothing to do"instead of "driver had no rescue"?I think, the meaning will remain constant.

    Please say what the relation of "Because at its approach" is to the rest of its ​the sentence. Is the placement of "Because at its approach" right? What will happen if I write "driver had nothing to do"instead of "driver had no rescue"? (Space after a question mark) I think (no comma here) the meaning will remain constant the same.
    See above.

    Neither "the driver had nothing to do" nor "the driver had no rescue" is correct. See my changes in the main paragraph.

    "because" is in the right place but it should have been attached to sentence 1, not sentence 2.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: road accident

    The sentence is badly written

    Some witnesses claimed that the boy shared the liability for taking place this accident. Because At its the approach of the car, he had suddenly and unexpectedly started to run across the road. The incident happened so fast its the driver (of the car​) had no rescue ​alternative/choice/way out.

    Re: road accident

    Please say why no comma has been used beore because as the car approached. Why is liabilty not suitable for this context? And why had rescue/nothing to do are not suitable in this case. I am really exciting because I'm going to learn something from you.
