In some cases, a defendant can still be liable for damages even if there is an intervening act, between a negligent act and the harm. However, the intervening act must be something that is foreseeable. For example, in the case of Watson v. Kentucky & Indiana Bridge and Railroad, (137 Ky. 619, 126 S.W. 146 (1910)), a railroad negligently derailed a tanker and spilled some gasoline. Some jerk wandered by and intentionally tossed a match and started a fire. The court held that the railroad was not liable because "the intervening agency is something so unexpected or extraordinary that the railroad could not have anticipated it."
