Through a mutual friend, respondents arranged with appellant car owner for transportation to an out-of-town football game, and it was agreed between the parties that the passengers should reimburse the owner for the expenses of transportation and cost of lunch provided by the appellant. After the game the parties decided to drive to another town for dinner; en route the car skidded and overturned as a result of appellant's negligence, and the respondent wife was seriously injured. Held, that the members of the party were engaged in a "joint adventure" so that the automobile guest statute would not bar recovery for injuries sustained by respondent wife as a result of appellant's negligence.
