Hi all, This is my first post here! Oh happy day! I have a question regarding a scene in my novel. Two characters (incidentally, both women) are involved in a late night confrontation in a very seedy part of a city. Let's call them A and B. A has a gun to B's head. B works in the area so maybe she's a familiar face to some of the rougher neighborhood types, though it's unlikely. So: How logical/plausible is it that someone, whether just a passer-by or someone from the area would try to hit A with their car, in the hopes of hurting A and letting B get away (therefore saving B's life)? Would anyone actually do that? By the end of the scene, A needs to be badly hurt, but I don't want B to be the one who actually hurt her. I'm not sure how A can get hurt in this scenario without some kind of third-party intervention, and it would be convenient to my storyline if she had gotten hit by a car. Can anyone else think of how A could get hit during this scene? Maybe if the standoff actually takes place in the middle of the street to begin with? (My other concern, aside from the dubious plausibility of someone actually hitting someone with a car to try to save someone else, is that if A got hit by a car while holding a gun to B's head, it's likely B would have gotten hurt too. But she didn't.) Any help would be appreciated. I am aware how privileged I am, in that I don't have the faintest idea in re: how to answer this question. Peace.
