Plaintiff's car, which was being driven on a main highway at a sixty-mile-per-hour speed, was struck when the defendant negligently permitted his car to veer over into the path of the plaintiff. The collision resulted (1) in minor damages to plaintiff's machine at the time of the impact, and (2) in serious damages, about 125 feet farther up the road, when plaintiff's car struck a tree and a stone wall. The case was tried to the court, and resulted in an award of $200 damages, that amount being estimated damages resulting from the original impact. On appeal, it was held, one justice dissenting, that the plaintiff was entitled to recover his total damages, including those suffered subsequently to the first impact. Mahoney v. Beatman (Conn. 1929) 147 Atl. 762.
