    Re: A young man's life...

    Second sentence. Say:

    During the journey, before they can confess their feelings to each other, they have a terrible accident. On the same day, Leela's parents are injured, and it looks as if her father won't survive.

    I need to know what kind of an accident it was and how her parents were injured.

    What did I do to the second sentence, and why?

    Next sentences. Say:

    Arjun and Leela don't believe it is a coincidence. They later find out that it was an attempt to kill Leela. Arjun decides to save Leela and her family. He decides to protect them from their would-be killers.

    We have accidents. We don't meet them.

    In BrE, it's perfectly natural to say that someone met with an accident.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
