Authorities: Lim falls on mechanic, kills him

Posted: Updated:

ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a mechanic was killed when a floor jack gave way and dropped a limousine on him at a northern New Jersey business.

The death of the 70-year-old man, whose name was not released, appears to have been an accident. But an investigation is ongoing.

Elizabeth city spokeswoman Kelly Vence told The Star-Ledger (http://bit.ly/1y9btxf) that the mechanic was working under a stretch limousine on Saturday morning when the floor jack gave way for an unknown reason. He was pronounced dead a short time later.

No other injuries were reported in the incident.
