CHICAGO (AP) - A Chicago man working beneath a car was crushed to death when the vehicle slipped off a jack.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office is identifying the man as 50-year-old Jorge Jimenez of Belmont Cragin on the North Side. It says he died Friday in the Garfield Ridge neighborhood near Midway International Airport.

An autopsy on Sunday determined that Jimenez died of mechanical asphyxia. The medical examiner’s office ruled the death an accident.
