Plaintiff sued to recover for personal injuries sustained when riding with defendants in the latters' automobile. The parties were on a few days' pleasure trip. It was apparently the tacit and mutual understanding that the expenses of transportation, hotels, etc., would be shared equally. Held, plaintiff was a guest within the meaning of the guest statute, and thus had no right of recovery against the driver or owner for injury resulting from the negligence of the driver. McCann v. Hoffman, (Cal. 1937) 70 P. (2d) 909.
