NEW INFO: Pitt County Man Crushed Under Fallen Vehicle

A man who was working on a mini-van this afternoon was crushed to death after the vehicle fell on him.

It happened around 12:20 p.m. at a home mobile park on Brown Place Drive, that's off Highway 33 near the airport.

Deputies say it appears a jack gave way on the front of the mini-van, causing it to fall. Afterward, EMS workers placed wheel chocks behind the rear wheels to secure the vehicle.

Deputies identify the man as Michael Harris.

The 44-year-old Harris died at the scene and deputies say it appears to be an accident.
