So, because he'd rushed something, this ultimately delayed him to the point he was running out of time?
Running out of time to complete some task?
Running out of time to get to some place?

I'm sorry, the building was acutally destroyed after he speeded the car. My fault. Yes, it's relevant how the building was destroyed.

Was he stoppped for speeding by a policeman? Standard traffic cop? Or someone trying to catch whoever blew up the building?
You said earlier the crime was generally serious enough to result in jail (as I imagine blowing up a building would), but not in this case? Was the building being blown up as part of a legal demolition?
Or act of sabotage?

So, a guy is blowing up a building, using a timed explosion, and after setting the timer, leaves in a hurry (as would be expected). He's stopped by the police by speeding, and after this he returns to the building, except the bomb goes off & kills him. Ok so far?
So the thing that remains is the reason for returning to the building, right?
Did the policeman who stopped him say something to make him return?
Something to trigger his conscience?
Something which would have incriminated him?
For his driving licence?
Did he return to the building intending to stop the bomb?
Did the policeman accompany the man back to the building?
Was the building he destroyed:-
His home?
A rival's home?
His place of work?
A competitor's place of work?
A government building?
Was anyone else hurt when the bomb exploded? A family member? A(n ex) friend? Many people? The policeman?

So the thing that remains is the reason for returning to the building, right? Yes
Did the policeman who stopped him say something to make him return? Yes
Something to trigger his conscience? No
Something which would have incriminated him? No
For his driving licence? No
Did he return to the building intending to stop the bomb? No
Did the policeman accompany the man back to the building? YES
Was the building he destroyed:-
His home?
A rival's home?
His place of work?
A competitor's place of work?
A government building? This one
Was anyone else hurt when the bomb exploded? Yes A family member? A(n ex) friend? Many people? Yes The policeman? Yes
