A Roman Forest resident was at his daughters home Sunday morning working on her Mercedes. Using his wrecker he lifted the front of the vehicle up and was underneath the vehicle attempting to adjust the shift linkage. That is when the vehicle rolled backwards falling on top of him. It was unknown exactly how long he was under the vehicle before being discovered. When family members and neighbors saw him they immediately attempted to use jacks found in the garage to raise the vehicle off of him.
MCHD responded along with New Caney Fire Department. Medics were unable to help the 48-year-old man.
He was pronounced deceased by Justice of the Peace James Metts who also ordered the victim be transported to the Montgomery County Forensic Center for autopsy by Eickenhorst Funeral Directors.
The name of the victim has not yet been released by Roman Forest Police pending notification of family members.
