||Car falls on Tupelo man
TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) — Authorities say a Tupelo man appears to be okay after a car fell on him while he was working underneath it Monday morning.
Sgt. Daniel Owens says the man was apparently working on his car when the car jack gave way trapping him underneath.
Authorities say the man was underneath the vehicle for approximately 35 minutes before firemen and other agencies received the call, but a family member says it was more like five to 10 minutes. Emergency personnel used an airbag system to raise the car off of him.
The man was taken to the North Mississippi Medical Center for treatment.
