Florida man crushed by car he was working beneath

A Florida man died Saturday when the car he was working on fell and crushed him, investigators said.

The 64-year-old man was working on a neighbor's silver Hyundai sedan when the car slipped off two jacks that were being used to lift it, the Volusia Sheriff's Office said.

Update 2:46 p.m. EDT March 9: The Volusia County Sheriff's Office identified the victim as Eduardo Valle.

Original report: The car's owner and her sister left the house around noon and found the victim under the car when they returned around 2:35 p.m.

Rescuers were called to the scene and pronounced the man dead. His identity has not been released because his family still has to be notified.
