The identity has been released of a man making repairs on his car at a self-storage facility who was killed after he got pinned under the vehicle overnight in Orange County, police said.
Members of the New Windsor Police Department responded to Guardian Storage on Windsor Highway in New Windsor on Wednesday, March 4, where there was a report of a man who had been under a car since last night.
According to police, upon arrival, they found the 32-year-old, now identified as Jalil Mcnair, of Newburgh, dead and pinned under the car.
The preliminary investigation into Mcnair’s death determined that he was attempting to make a repair on his vehicle between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
He had jacked up the vehicle to make the repair, and it appears the car moved forward, knocking the jack out of place, and causing the vehicle to land on him.
The New Windsor Police Detective Division and Orange County Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating.
