Man injured when car falls

August 15, 1997

WARFORDSBURG, Pa. - A Buck Valley, Pa., man was injured Thursday morning when a car fell on him as he was working underneath it.

A jack supporting the car apparently slipped causing it to fall on the unidentified man, pinning him in the neck and shoulder area, according to Needmore Volunteer Fire Company Dispatcher Eugene Mellott.

The man's father, Jesse Cavender, used a loader from his sawmill to lift the car up, Mellott said.

"That's probably what saved his life," Mellott said.

The man was flown to Cumberland Memorial Hospital where he was in guarded condition Thursday.
