A 42-year-old Macomb Township man was killed this week when the jack holding up his car flipped, crushing him under the weight of the vehicle, according to The Macomb Daily.
Macomb County sheriff's officers found Timothy Hamler pinned under his car around 4:30 a.m. Friday after a neighbor noticed the garage door had been left open and the light on during the night, Macomb County Sheriff Anthony Wickersham told The Macomb Daily.
A neighbor last saw Hamler working under his vehicle around 9:30 p.m. Thursday night. Wickersham told The Macomb Daily he believes Hamler's death to be an accident, caused by the flipped jack.
Hamler was a military veteran and father of two.
