PATTON, Pa. (AP) – Officials say a Pennsylvania man working on a car died after he was pinned under the vehicle.
State police in Cambria County said the accident happened Monday in a dirt floor garage in Chest Township.
Coroner Jeff Lees said 24-year-old Zachary Gray was repairing the car’s alternator when the jack apparently shifted, causing the vehicle to fall. He was found inside the garage shortly before 8 a.m. Monday.
Lees said Gray was pronounced dead at the scene, probably of traumatic chest injuries, and his death “appears to be an unfortunate accident.”
