Tort/Negligence – Personal Injury – Auto Accident – Passenger – Driver’s Speeding – Proximate Cause (access required)

Black v. Cayia Plaintiff William Black was a passenger in the vehicle defendant Knox was driving when defendant Cayia admittedly failed to yield the right of way when she turned left into Knox’s lane, causing the two vehicles to collide. The evidence shows that, even if Knox were traveling 45 mph in a 35-mph zone, this was not a “but for” cause of the accident. We affirm summary judgment for defendant Knox and defendant Dao, who owned the vehicle Knox was driving (collectively, respondents).
