STEWART, Justice: Plaintiff, Charles Kinne, sought review of an order of the State Industrial Commission which found joint and several liability on the part of Kinne and Freeport Transport, Inc., as employers of Max L. Wynn, who was killed in a tractor accident. Kinne contends the facts do not support the Commission's findings (1) that Wynn's accident occurred in the course of his employment and (2) that Kinne was Wynn's employer. In May 1976 Kinne entered into an agreement with Freeport Transport, Inc., providing for the lease of a tractor owned by Kinne to Freeport. Pursuant to the written agreement, Kinne was to be responsible, inter alia, for the direction, control, salaries, and workmen's compensation coverage of his employees. Freeport assumed liability for injuries resulting from the negligent operation of the vehicle involving others than Kinne or his employees. Kinne failed to provide workmen's compensation coverage.
