A 57-year-old Jersey City man who was rescued by mechanics after becoming trapped underneath a car in Linden Wednesday has died, authorities announced days later.

Michael Ohman Jr. was crossing the 700 block of E. Elizabeth Avenue when he was struck by a 2007 Kia SUV heading west around 9:50 a.m., Linden Police Lt. Christopher Guenther said.

Mechanics from a nearby auto repair shop helped free Ohman from underneath the vehicle.

He was rushed to Newark University Hospital, where he was pronounced dead late Thursday, Guenther said.

The Kia driver, a 24-year-old Linden man, was not injured in the crash.

This crash remains under investigation by the Linden Police Traffic Bureau and the Union County Homicide Task Force. Anyone with information about the crash is urged to contact Investigator Ryan Zaccaro at (908) 474-8505.
