The opinion of the court was delivered by This is an action filed under the wrongful death statute by the
administrator (appellant) for the death of Howard G. Townsend.
The action was based upon the negligence of the defendant in
driving his automobile in excess of the lawful speed limit, and
in failing to yield the right of way to the decedent who was
walking across a highway. Contributory negligence was the basis
of the defense. The case was tried to a jury and resulted in a
verdict and judgment for the defendant. Appeal was duly perfected
from the judgment and all other adverse rulings. The underlying question presented is whether there was
sufficient evidence to support a finding by the jury that the
decedent was guilty of contributory negligence.
