Claimant, being loaned to State employer by temporary employment agency, slipped and fell on ice on nonpublic parking lot while exiting her vehicle to go to work. Parking lot was provided by State specifically for state employees. Claimant's ability to use parking lot was derived from her status as State employee, and parking there was customary and permitted. Injuries were caused by accident that arose out of claimant's employment as a matter of law. (HOLDRIDGE, HOFFMAN, HUDSON, and HARRIS, concurring.)
