In a complex sentence, can we use two 'continuous tense' clauses?

In compound sentences, sometimes we must use two different tenses.
For example:
It was broken (past simple tense) while we were trying (past continuous tense) to fix it.
You will see more examples from other documents.
Thank you very much !
