In Rachels v. Pepoon, 5 N.J. Misc.R. 122, 135 A. 684, the employee was hired to assist in the distribution of newspapers. His duties required him to ride the trucks of his employer from point to point where the papers were distributed. With the permission of his employer, after the work of distribution was over on the day of the accident, he remained at the last point of distribution for a matter of personal business and was too late to catch his employer's truck returning to the starting point.Summary of this case from Express Agency v.
