A man was killed Saturday morning when the car he was working fell on top of him and apparently crushed him to death.

State police at Frackville said Ricky Dye, 41, was pronounced dead at the scene in a grassy area behind his 21 Pattersonville Road home at 12:20 p.m. by Schuylkill County Deputy Coroner Andrew Szczyglak of Shenandoah.

Ringtown EMS and Shenandoah ALS assisted at the scene.
