GAFFNEY, S.C. (AP) — Authorities say a mechanic who travels to homes to fix cars died after a vehicle he was working on slipped off ramps and crushed him.
Cherokee County Coroner Dennis Fowler says 31-year-old Jamel Norman was trapped between the front axle of the Ford Explorer and the concrete driveway at a Gaffney home around 3 p.m. Monday.
The coroner says the front tires of the SUV rolled off a pair of ramps Norman was using to get under it.
Norman died at the scene. An autopsy has been ordered, but Fowler says he does not suspect foul play.
