Deputies believe the man was working on the vehicle when it fell off the jacks, possibly during one of two earthquakes that hit the Ridgecrest area last week.
The location of the death is more than 130 miles from the epicenter of the earthquakes that left families in Ridgecrest and Trona without running water, electricity and some without homes.
Tippets said more information will be released as soon as the investigation is complete.MORE NEWS: Desperate To Find More Staff, Some Fast Food Restaurants Recruiting Customers
