The servant of Maurice Blotner (defendant) was driving a heavy truck northbound down the street. Blotner’s servant prepared to turn left at an intersection, and there was substantial traffic flowing in the opposite direction. Blotner’s servant waited for an opening to make his turn before turning left. As Blotner’s servant was making his turn, Mary and Doris Rouleau (plaintiffs) were traveling southbound toward Blotner. The Rouleaus’ driver believed Blotner’s truck was standing still, and the driver thereafter did not look down the road at Blotner’s truck until the driver was approximately 20 feet away from the truck. The vehicles ultimately collided. The Rouleaus claimed Blotner’s servant was negligent in not using his turn signal, and the Rouleaus brought suit against Blotner as a result of the alleged negligence. The jury found for the Rouleaus, and Blotner appealed.
