Tracy's life is on the line after Cain tampers with Pollard's car breaks...

As Kim ups her plan to ruin things for Cain (Jeff Hordley) next week, she orders Mack to steal more cars from the garage.

Later Cain and Dan are shocked to find two more cars are missing, and Aaron is sure that Mack has something to do with it after spotting him hanging around the garage.

An unsuspecting Pollard soon finds himself caught in the firing line when he takes his car to the garage for a service.

Knowing that Mack and Kim are going to try and steal Pollard's car too, Cain tampers with the breaks to teach them a lesson.

However, when pregnant Tracy starts getting contractions and thinks she is in labour, Pollard comes to her rescue by offering to drive her to the hospital.

Without checking with Cain, Pollard grabs his car from the garage and races terrified Tracy off to the hospital.

But the reality of what has happened soon hits Cain when he sees Mack and realises he isn't the one behind the wheel of Pollard's car.

Meanwhile, as Pollard is racing a screaming Tracy to hospital, he panics when his brakes fail and the pair brace themselves for the impact.

Will they make it out of the crash alive? Or has Cain just accidentally killed the mother of his grandchild?
