Nick Tilsley in car crash horror on Coronation Street
The rivalry between half-brothers Nick Tilsley and David Platt comes to a head when they both end up in hospital fighting for their lives after a car crash
Nick Tilsley ends up in a coma on 'Coronation Street'.
The tension between warring half-siblings David Platt (Jack P. Shepherd) and Nick (Ben Price) will come to a head on the ITV soap this August when jealous David - who worries his wife Kylie's unborn baby may be his brother's - takes to the wheel in a fit of rage, with disastrous consequences.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "David and Nick have been at each other's throats since David found out his wife Kylie has been cheating on him with his own brother.
"David has already smashed up Nick and Leanne's flat but that's just the beginning. The pair of them end up getting into a car together and there is an almighty row.
"With tempers frayed, David causes the car to spin out of control and it ends up crashing, leaving both brothers needed emergency treatment.
"But while they both end up in hospital, it's Nick who bears the brunt of it. He's knocked unconscious and remains in a coma in intensive care."
The accident takes place just as Kylie (Paula Lane) is rushed to hospital to give birth in a dramatic twist of events.
David's paranoia has been increasing ever since he overheard Kylie discussing her Christmas one-night stand with Nick, and he will even contemplate taking his own life.
Actor Ben Price recently revealed the story was going to have serious repercussions, hinting things would get very "dark" this summer.
