Midvalley man injured when pinned under vehicle
A midvalley man sustained serious injuries Wednesday when the vehicle he was working on slipped off its support and crushed him, Basalt Fire Chief Scott Thompson said.
The accident was reported at 79 Arapahoe in Sopris Village right before 5 p.m.
“The neighbors actually freed him before we got there,” Thompson said. “They used a couple of floor jacks.”
The man suffered muscular and skeletal injuries that are potentially life threatening, Thompson said.
The man had been working on the vehicle in the driveway of a home when the accident occurred. No details were immediately available on why the vehicle slipped off supports.
