F.W. Robinson and Max Padzensky were both driving in separate cars when they struck. The collision resulted in the cars becoming interlocked with one another and to slide off course. As the cars slid off course, Padzensky’s car collided with Rose McDonald, Plaintiff, a pedestrian. Thereafter, Plaintiff was dragged beneath Padzensky’s car for about 50 feet, causing her to sustain serious injuries. Plaintiff brought a single suit against both Robinson and Padzensky contending that each was negligent and that their concurrent negligence caused her injuries. Plaintiff prevailed in the trial court, and Robinson appealed on the ground that himself and Padzensky were misjoined as defendants.
