A 22-year-old man was crushed to death under a car outside a tire repair shop Monday afternoon in northeast Colorado Springs, police said.

The unidentified man had been working under the back of a car outside Carrera's Tires, 3522 N. El Paso St., police said.

"The vehicle's tires were not blocked, and the car appeared to have rolled on a grade, causing the car to fall off of the jack stands," police said. "The male party was trapped under the car for an unknown amount of time before being found."

Police confirmed the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene, is an employee of the tire shop.
