NYE COUNTY, Nev. (CNN) – Authorities in Nevada are investigating a possible earthquake-related death.
On Tuesday, Nye County sheriff’s deputies responded to a call about a man pinned under a vehicle in Pahrump.
When they arrived, they found the victim, a 56-year-old male, dead.
Officials say it appears the man was giving the vehicle a tune-up at the time of his death.
Investigators believe the vehicle may have fallen off the jacks and crushed the man.
On July 4, a 6.4-earthquake hit Ridgecrest, California, and the effects were felt in Pahrump.
His identity has yet to be released.
