Before GOODRICH, KALODNER and STALEY, Circuit Judges.


This appeal involves the liability of the appellants in a personal injury claim by the individual plaintiff and a property damage claim by the intervening plaintiff. The case was brought to a jury through special interrogatories carefully framed by the Trial Judge and answered by the jury. The only questions involved are those of fact and we find no basis for setting aside the special findings or the conclusions reached by the Trial Judge upon them.

The judgments will be affirmed.
