Reply to "Reported"

Hi, David and Ahmed_btm,

So is it possible to use backshift with the verb in the main clause and leave the other verb in the subordinate close as it is ? i.e 'I was told that my friend had had a terrible accident while he was driving to Mansoura.'

Is this applicable to any subordinate clause?

It's just that I need to make sure that I got it right because it's the first time for me to know/read about this.

Thanks for tolerating my question.
