Burke County man dies after car falls on him

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.
