In Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy, Romeo and Juliet, there is a prime example of this. Tybalt died in Act 3, Scene 1 at no one else’s fault but his own. Tybalt demonstrated characteristics of an extreme hot head, he initiated, or tried to initiate multiple fights within the play, and he ended the life of a member of the Prince’s own family, Mercutio.
He also leaves Juliet alone in the tomb after she awakens to find her beloved Romeo dead. Friar Lawrence is a moral man, but his hubris leads to the death of Romeo and Juliet.

But, instead Friar Lawrence sent another Friar to tell Romeo his plan, but something had went wrong, the Friar should had waited to give Juliet the potion after he confirmed Romeo about the plan. Also, Friar John flees the Capulet monument when Juliet needed him the most, and the result is her suicide. In the monument, Friar Lawrence attempted to persuade Juliet to go with him and flee the tomb.

The hurried time span of the story forced all of the events to happen much too quickly for the characters to be able to make reasonable decisions. The numerous times the characters were put into coincidental situations led to a series of events that concluded with the deaths of Romeo and Juliet.
