HOUSE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) — Authorities say it appears that a man was killed after his car fell on top of him in eastern Missouri.

KSDK-TV reports that it happened Thursday morning in House Springs, which is south of the St. Louis area. Missouri State Highway Patrol trooper Dallas Thompson says it appears the man was working on his broken-down car before it fell on him.

Jefferson County Sheriff Dave Marshak later confirmed the fatality on Twitter. The man's name wasn't immediately released.
