Puzzle of Crossing the Dark Bridge in 17 Minutes

How to cross the bridge in 17 minutes?

 4 people who want to cross a bridge at night with a torch have to cross the bridge in the dark in 17 minutes

-The second person B takes 2 minutes to cross the bridge.

-The fourth person D takes 10 minutes to cross the bridge.
