R v Hennigan 
- Hennigan killed another driver by crashing into him at a dangerous speed on a dark road
- Both drivers were potentially at fault
- Was Hennigan responsible for the death of the other driver?
- The trial judge was wrong in equating criminal liability with a 20% threshold test for contribution to the result
- As long as Hennigan’s act contributed to the other driver’s death in a more than minimal way, he caused the death
