A Jonesboro man was killed Wednesday when the truck he was repairing in his back yard apparently fell off a floor jack onto him, according to Clayton County Police. Police responded to a home in the 400 block of Ga. Highway 138, just before 5 p.m., according to a police report.
Steve Hoke Bagley, 52, was lying under the vehicle, and did not show signs of life, the report states.
Bagley was pronounced dead on the scene. His wife, Tammy Bagley, told police that her husband had been working on his truck, when she went to check on him.
"She advised that when the victim began to work on the vehicle, the floor jack was being used to hold the vehicle up, but the vehicle must have somehow come off the floor jack," the police report states.
She told police she ran to get a neighbor to help lift the Ford Ranger, but the two could not lift it, and she called 911, according to the report.
There was no suspicion of foul play in the incident, according to police records.
