THE battle for Alfie's custody has come to a head after Imran Habeeb got into a car crash with his wife Toyah Battersby.
Due to his feud with Abi Webster in previous episodes of Coronation Street, police doubt the crash was an accident.
Accidents are rare in the cobbles as many tragedies hide devastating secrets.
But could this really be the case when it comes to Imran Habeeb (portrayed by Charlie De Melo) and Toyah Batterby's (Georgia Taylor) car crash?
After bribing private investigator Ben and lying in court, the solicitor was able to get custody of his son Alfie, destroying Abi Webster's (Sally Carman) efforts in the process.
However, his former foster daughter Kelly Neelan (Millie Gibson) was soon on to him as she held a mirror to his recent behaviour.

Unable to handle the feelings of guilt, realising he didn't like the man he had become, Imran made the decision to come clean and was eventually encouraged by his wife Toyah to go to the police.
While on their way to the station, the pair were sadly involved in a horrifying crash and their lives were left hanging in the balance.
Word of the crash gets to Weatherfield residents and questions begin to arise immediately.
This is due to Abi's desperate attempts at getting Alfie's custody, thus giving her a plausible motive to act out against the married couple.

Coming up, the street reels in the aftermath of the car crash while baby Alfie’s future seems increasingly uncertain.
Suspicions mount about the circumstances of the crash, notably after it's revealed Abi's mechanic husband Kevin Webster (Michael Le Vell) was the last to have worked on the Habeebs' car.
Soon enough, the car crash becomes a case for the police to solve and an investigation is launched.
Following the crash, authorities made it clear that they didn't believe it was an accident and Abi was brought in for questioning.
