Automobile accident. At approximately 4:30 p.m. on May 18, 1961, plaintiff Sharon Misiewicz was proceeding in a westerly direction on Highway 190, also known as Capitol drive, in the city of Brookfield, Waukesha county. She prepared to turn left from Capitol drive onto Pilgrim road, County Trunk Highway YY. Her preparation consisted of turning on her left directional signal and bringing her car to a stop for a short period of time. Defendant Brian Waters was proceeding in an easterly direction on Capitol drive, traveling within the posted speed limit (50 miles per hour). Although he was familiar with the intersection he did not slacken his speed as he approached. Defendant had an unobstructed view of the intersection for approximately 1,300 feet. He testified that he saw several cars in a line approaching from the opposite direction but that he did not become specifically aware of the plaintiff's car until he was from 200 to 300 feet away from it, and that he did not know that plaintiff was going to make a left turn until he was 150 feet away.
