I was told that my friend ………………. a terrible accident while he was driving to Mansoura.
a had had
c was having
d is having
I think that 'b' is the correct answer. If I am right, would 'a' be wrong because backshift is not possible here as backshift wasn't used with 'was driving' ?
Yes, the only correct answer here is: 'had'. The backshift isn't needed here.
