The Court affirmed a decision of the Board and ALJ finding that an automobile accident occurring while the employee was driving home in the company vehicle was covered.  The COA cited previous case law which held that when an employee provides service benefiting the employer while going home or coming to work, his trip is an exception to the “going and coming” rule which excludes the trip to work and the trip home from workers’ compensation coverage.
