Re: Man dies after car falls on him
My father had his 1949 Nash on a bumper jack with the right front wheel off. He was under the car from the front checking the bottom of the radiator for a leak when the jack dropped the car. It fell on the above ground roots of a giant Sycamore tree it was parked next to. Had it not been for those large roots stopping the car from going all the way to the ground, I wouldn't be writing this as it happened before I came along.
I also use the two jack stand procedure.
