BEATRICE (AP) — A man died in southeastern Nebraska after a minivan he was working under fell onto him, officials there said.

The accident happened just before 5:30 p.m. Wednesday in Beatrice, radio station KWBE reported. Firefighters and first responders were called to an apartment complex where the man had been working to fix a flat tire, with the van lifted on a jack.

The jack malfunctioned, causing the van to fall onto the victim, Beatrice Police Sgt. Daniel Moss said. Authorities said the man died at the scene.

The man was identified Thursday as 31-year-old Colton Snook, who lived at the apartment complex.
