TOWN OF BURLINGTON, Wis. (AP) -- Racine County officials say a man who was working on his car at his Town of Burlington home has died after the vehicle apparently fell on him.
A Journal Times of Racine report (http://bit.ly/1moYMZI ) says 69-year-old John P. Fischer was found dead Friday morning.
Sheriff's Lt. Dan Klatt says a neighbor saw Fischer's garage door open Thursday night, and it was still open Friday about 7:20 a.m. The neighbor went to talk to Fischer and found him under the car.
Medical examiner Michael Payne says a preliminary investigation suggests that the jack holding up the car twisted, causing the car to fall. Payne says the body is being autopsied to determine the exact cause of death.
