Lawrence (played by John Bowe) was only recently released from hospital after a brain aneurysm in the ITV soap, but a vengeful Robert Sugden (Ryan Hawley) has been slipping him sleeping pills.
Unbeknownst to Rebecca White (Emily Head), who is carrying Robert’s child, the abandoned husband blames the entire family for his devastating break up with Aaron Dingle (Danny Miller) and has been seeking his version of justice.
On the day of a zombie fun run however, Lawrence woke up from his extended sleep and proceeded to get into his car completely unaware of his current state.
It wasn’t long before he lost control and the car careered off course through the forest, finally flipping upside down after landing in the middle of Victoria’s (Isabel Hodgins) stall.
Shocked at the unfolding carnage, viewers instantly took to Twitter in awe at the turn of events.
One person posted: “F***ing hell Lawrence! #emmerdale,” as another begged: “Oh nooooooo please let Lawrence @JohnBoweActor be okay #Emmerdale @emmerdale.”
“Who got hurt??? With Lawrence’s crash! #Emmerdale,” one fan demanded.
While another viewer echoed: “Who’s Lawrence gonna mow down?! #Emmerdale.”
Surprisingly, the chaos quickly ended when it was revealed that no one was seriously hurt from the crash, though Victoria suffered a badly bruised ankle.
Seemingly trying to make up for his secret connection to the incident, Robert desperately tried to help his stubborn sister.
Will the awful accident force Robert to rethink his dangerous plan?
