Shades of Palsgraf

A gory Illinois case holds that a man who was killed by a train as he was rushing to catch another one should have been able to foresee that his flying body might injure a person waiting at the platform.  The Chicago Tribune has the details.

Thanks to Geoff Rapp (Toledo) for the tip.
