Lowell, Lawrence & Haverhill Street Railway (Mass.), 59 N. E. Rep. 77. Jan. 4, 1901.A foot traveler whose course is across the tracks of a street railway, the supreme judicial court of Massachusetts holds, must exercise care to avoid being hurt by the cars, and if he is struck by a car and injured or killed, there can be no recovery, in a suit against the railway company for damages, unless the plaintiff shows by affirmative evidence that the traveler was in the exercise of due diligence to avoid injury. And, further, when the whole evidence has no tendency to show care on the part of the traveler, but, on the contrary, shows that he was careless, it is the duty of the court to direct a verdict for the defendant.Sufficient Diligence to Maintain Track in Safe Condition.Casper v. Dry dock, East Broadway & Battery Railroad Co. (N. Y. Sup.), 67 N. Y. Supp. 805. Dec. 31, 1900.Assuming in this case that there was evidence to go to the jury that at about 12 o'clock in the day a rail had become loosened, so that the plaintiff's foot was caught between the rail and the pavement, and that proof of this fact, unexplained, justified an inference of negligence, the first appellate division of the supreme court of New York holds that this presumption was rebutted, so that it was proper to direct a verdict for the defendant where the evidence showed that employes were constantly inspecting the road, and repairs were promptly made; that several trips had been made over it that day, before the accident, to ascertain if anything was out of order; that at about 11 o'clock an inspector had observed that there were two holes that needed spikes, and had immediately reported same by a note which he sent by a conductor, and that the repair was made shortly after 1 o'clock, or within about an hour after the accident.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
