AUBURN -- A 72-year-old Auburn man was killed when the truck he was working on fell on him Saturday evening.

The man was removing the transmission of the pickup truck when the jacks collapsed on him, Auburn Police Mike Hirman said.

His family found him dead under the truck later. He had recently purchased the older Nissan truck.

They are not sure when the incident happened in 10704 S.E. 304th St., police said.

The man was living with his daughter and son-in-law at the home. His name has not been released.

The King County Medical Examiner was called to the scene to investigate.
