Storyline

An old woman crashes her car into a building for apparently no reason. When it emerges that three of the five people in the window were from the same healthcare company, and she had cancer, the team realize it may not be an accident. Sara is happy to see Hank survived the incident, but during the case, she discovers he may be two-timing. Meanwhile, a woman dies of CO poisoning, with her husband being left seriously ill, despite him lying in the same bed. It emerges that the chimney was sabotaged, so it most definitely wasn't an accident. Written by movieguy3
