Court: TN Court of Appeals

Attorneys 1:

D. Michael Kress, II, Sparta, Tennessee, for the appellant, April and Roger Miller.

Attorneys 2:

B. Thomas Hickey, Jr., Chattanooga, Tennessee and Scott W. McMickle and Jon M. Hughes, Alpharetta, Georgia, for the appellee, Northland Insurance Company.

Judge(s): BENNETT

A commercial truck driver was injured while sitting in the passenger seat with another person driving. The question presented is whether the passenger qualified as an employee and was, therefore, excluded from benefits under the trucking company’s liability insurance policy. We agree with the trial court’s conclusion that the passenger was an employee when the accident occurred.
