Notes / Description: 

Clain Adcock, 16, was waiting in a public crossing for a through train to pass when a train on the siding backed up into him without signaling and injured his feet so badly that both had to be amputated. A. Adcock is his father. The principal argument for the plaintiff seems to be that that crossing had been used for many years and that the train crew should have looked to see whether anyone was on the track before moving.
