The employee was one of multiple independent self-employed contrac tors who subleased space at the junkyard as tenants to store and repair automobi les purchased at auction prior to transporting them for resale in Mexico. The em ployee was in a verbal contract with another independent contractor, a coworker, to sublease a portion of the employee's workspace to also independently repair vehicles at the junkyard. The employee was working alone under a Chevrolet Impa la with the front end elevated by two jack stands and both front tires removed, when the vehicle fell from the jack stands.
