Man trapped under truck while working on it; Parlier police rescue him

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Doctors are working to save a 58-year-old man who was crushed by the weight of his own truck Tuesday evening in Parlier.

It happened while he was working on his vehicle in the front yard of this home on South Milton Avenue just after 9:30 p.m.

It looks like the truck may have been elevated by bricks when for some reason it came crashing down trapping the victim underneath.

A family member called 911. Police got to the scene first. They say there was no car jack nearby, so it took a little bit to get the man free.

Officers tried to give him CPR. When the fire department arrived, they also tried to resuscitate him.

He has been taken to a local hospital but his injuries at this time are still unknown.

Police say they're still looking into how this accident happened.
