Recovery was sought by the surviving spouse and next of kin against the estate of a negligent driver where both the passenger and the driver were fatally injured and died "in the same traffic accident." Held, where both the injured person and the wrongdoer die, an action survives against the personal representatives of the wrongdoer. Kuhnle v. Swedlund, 220 Minn. 573, 20 N.W. (2d) 396 (1945).
