RALEIGH, N.C. -

A Wake County man died Thursday morning when his truck slipped off a jack and fell on top of him.

The Wake County Sheriff's Office said 71-year-old Merle Roger Tobias was working on the pickup truck around 8:40 a.m. in the driveway of a residence in the 1100 block Taos Trail south of Garner.

The truck slipped off of the jacks while Tobias was underneath, crushing him.

Tobias' wife left the residence to run errands before the incident occurred, authorities said.
