Vladimir Zhukov U.S. Court of Appeals Case No: 14-2981 U.S. District Court for the District of Nebraska - Omaha [PUBLISHED] [Loken, Author, with Bye and Kelly, Circuit Judges] Civil case - Personal injury. In a case of this kind, like the district court the court concludes that the Supreme Court of Nebraska would take a fact-specific approach to the question of whether a second highway crash was proximately caused by the intervening negligence of a third party that could not have been reasonably anticipated by the defendants who caused the first crash; the district court did not err in finding that the negligence of the driver of the vehicle which struck plaintiffs' decedents in the second crash was an unforeseeable efficient intervening cause as a matter of law, and the district court did not err in granting summary judgment to the driver-defendants who caused the first crash.
