For the reasons assigned in the companion case of Percy A. Champagne, Jr. v. Dorothy G. McDonald, and Fireman's Insurance Company, 355 So.2d 1335 (La.App. 3rd Cir. 1978), we conclude that the accident giving rise to this litigation was caused solely and proximately by the negligence of Dorothy G. McDonald. Accordingly, we affirm the trial court's judgment dismissing plaintiff's suit. Costs both on the trial level and on appeal are to be borne by plaintiff.
