A Burke County man was killed after his girlfriend’s car crushed him while he was working on it Monday, investigators said.

Around 5:20 p.m., Jewrel Dangelo Gray, 28, was found by his sister in their father’s yard on the 3400 block of Spring Hill Church Road in Blythe, Burke County sheriff’s Sgt. Dan Lowe said.

Lowe said it looked like the red Pontiac Grand Prix he was working on rolled back, fell off the jack stand and fell on him around 1 p.m. He was alone at the time.

“It was a tragic accident,” Lowe said.

My condolences to Mr. Gray's

My condolences to Mr. Gray's family and his girlfriend. The same type of accident nearly took my father's life. I hope everyone will be extra safe when working under cars... especially when alone.

Condolences to the gray family. These accidents can be prevented by using jack stands and chocking the wheels.
