Man Killed When Vintage Jeep Falls off Block

• CATEGORIES: Features

Patrick spotted this story.

The Ridgecrest, California, earthquake resulted in a one death. The man who died was working on a flat fender when (they presume) the quake knocked the jeep off of the jack and blocks and onto him. I couldn’t say if he was an eWillys reader, but none-the-less my deepest sympathies go out to his family.

    Getting under any vehicle supported by a high lift jack and a cinder block is not safe any time. I doubt if anything would have been safe during a quake. Sorry this happened.

    Wow! I’ve gotten under vehicles knowing I technically shouldn’t while thinking it will be fine. But I never once thought: ‘Will it hold up if there is an earthquake?’
