In this unanimous unpublished per curiam Opinion, the Court of Appeals held that an auto insurer that issues a fleet no-fault insurance policy to a corporation is not responsible for payment of PIP benefits under the policy, when a corporate employee is involved in an accident while driving a non-scheduled vehicle, even if one of the scheduled vehicles is owned by that corporate employee. The court felt that extending coverage in this situation would "unfairly expand the risks assumed by the corporate insurer." Therefore, the insurer of the unscheduled vehicle which was being driven by the corporate employee, was not entitled to be reimbursed from the fleet insurer for no-fault benefits it paid to the corporate employee.
