Police say a 22-year-old man died when the car he was working on fell off the jacks.

The accident happened at Carrera's Tire Shop, 3522 N. El Paso St., in Colorado Springs.

Investigators say the man was working under the back of the vehicle when it rolled on a grade, causing the car to fall off the jack stands.

The man was trapped under the car. Police aren't sure how long he was there before someone found him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The coroner's office was called to help with the investigation.
