MikiAs for the thrird example, 持って下さい。is correct. 
bamboo4In the first example, you have to add "He shook his head" at the beginnig of the sentence. 
yookosoIT seems I have often heard "ko iu fuuni" - is this the same as "konna fuuni"? Maybe spoken vs. written?  
lucienwhy not jiko wo okosu in example #1015? thx 
Miki#1015 kanji is different. 事故に遭う.
あんな風に運転していたら、きっと事故を起こすよ。is also ok. If he keeps driving like that he will definitely invite an accident.
bamboo4Yes, "konna fuuni" is more colloqual. 
JitiIs 'fuuni' same as 'youni'? 
Mikiyes. but you cannot always replace 'fuuni' with 'youni'.
