A owned a truck and he had hired B to drive it. On one of its trips. C flagged the truck down and asked to be dropped to a nearby city. B agreed to do so for a small amount of money. The truck met with an accident en route, in which C was badly injured. C sued A for damages.
A will be liable since B did the act in the course of his employment
A will be liable since he had not instructed B not to pick up passengers
A will not be liable since taking passengers in a truck had no connection with his business
A will not be liable because B was an experienced driver
Option "A will not be liable since taking passengers in a truck had no connection with his business" is correct because 'B' was not instructed to stop the truck on the way and take passengers. It is an unauthorized work.
