HUTTO, Texas (KXAN) – A Hutto man is dead after police found him lying under a car Thursday afternoon in the 200 block of Altamont Street in Hutto.

Officers were called to the home’s garage around 2:20 p.m. When they arrived, they discovered the man was already dead.

The man was using a floor jack to raise his vehicle so he could change the oil when the car fell from the jack, killing the man, city officials said.

An autopsy has been ordered as a standard part of a death investigation.
