UPDATE: Car slips off blocks, kills man underneath it

By  | 

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) – A man is killed when a car he was working on falls on top of him.

The 50-year-old man, whose identity has not been released, was doing maintenance on a Dodge Daytona on the 500 block of Darby Drive around noon Tuesday.

As he worked underneath it, the car slipped off the wooden blocks it was sitting on, hitting the man and trapping him. The blocks were sitting on icy and snowy patches in the road.

A neighbor ran over and used a jack to lift the car off him and relieve the pressure.

Grand Junction Fire Department crews took the injured man to a local hospital, but he died from his wounds.

Grand Junction Police are currently investigating the incident.
