RACINE, Wis (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A man who died after his vehicle apparently fell on him near Burlington was identified as 69-year-old John Fischer. The Racine County medical examiner said a preliminary investigation showed that Fischer was working underneath his car -- and a jack twisted, causing the vehicle to fall. An autopsy has yet to determine the exact cause of death.

A neighbor noticed that Fischer's garage door was open both Thursday night and Friday morning. The neighbor checked it out, and saw Fischer crushed under the vehicle.
