ERIC Pollard is left unconscious as he fights for his life after Megan Macey causes a car crash in Emmerdale.
She’s sending a text to Frank Clayton when she crashes into another car.
Soap legend Eric Pollard will be left fighting for his life in Emmerdale next week as he’s involved in a car crash caused by Megan Macey.
Megan – played by Gaynor Faye in the ITV soap – is in the car with her young daughter Eliza and is getting flustered because she’s late to meet Frank Clayton.
She decides to send him a text message to assure him that she’s on her way but disaster soon strikes.
As she’s texting from behind the wheel, she accidentally crashes into the back of a car – which turns out to be Jamie Tate’s.
The other car goes on to hit a distracted Eric – Chris Chittell – as he’s hurrying to the Woolpack to meet his partner Faith Dingle, keen to make up to her as she feels he’s been ignoring her.
Megan is unscathed and looks on in sheer horror at the carnage she’s caused with just one text.
Eric is seriously injured and an ambulance arrives to rush him to Hotten General.
As he’s loaded into the vehicle, Eric asks for Faith, desperate to see her.

Meanwhile Frank is disappointed when Megan fails to make it to their lunch date.
But when he goes round to confront her about her no-show, he’s instantly worried about her as she tells him about the crash and reeling from her own guilt for causing it.
At the hospital Faith – along with her daughter Chas and Eric’s son David Metcalfe – is terrified when Eric suddenly loses consciousness and the nurses come running in.
All they can do is watch on in horror as he’s wheeled down to theatre for emergency surgery.
