A Pennsylvania man was killed after he was crushed by a car at a Bucks County auto body shop.

Officials say the man, identified by employees as Erasmo Santana, was working at Negrete's Auto on the 4000 block of Bristol Pike Monday afternoon and performing mechanical work underneath a vehicle that was raised on jack stands.

One of the jack stands suddenly collapsed, causing the vehicle to fall on top of the employee. The man was removed from underneath the car but was later pronounced dead at the scene.

Officials continue to investigate the accident.
