Court Upholds City

The Supreme Court upheld the right of Seattle, Wash., to give Fire Department apparatus the right of way at all times. The case was brought about by an accident in which a fire captain was involved.

The apparatus on which he was riding was faced by a red light at a corner but it proceeded against the traffic light and crashed into a furniture truck. The officer sued the owners of the truck and the defendant’s attorneys contended that the ordinance giving the Fire Department the right of way was illegal. The court awarded the captain $15,000.
