Greene County Man Dies After His Car Rolls Over Him

September 3, 2012

A Greene County man is dead after being crushed by his own car. Officials say 64 year old, Marc Simpson was repairing his car in the driveway, when the Land Rover slipped off the jacks, crushing him.

“If you’re using jacks, be sure you have jack stands. I understand, Mr. Simpson did have jack stands but they weren’t place in the right location. Be sure to put them under the right differential, so if the jack does give away, all the load will fall on the jack stands,” said Steve Smith, Greene County Sheriff.

Officials have ruled Simpson’s death as an accidental death.
