SAN JOSÉ (CBS SF ) — A San Jose man who was working on his car in his driveway while his young granddaughter watched was crushed to death Monday night.

The Mustang slipped off its jacks and pinned both the man and the little girl, whom police said is about four or five-years-old.

It took eight firefighters to lift the car up off the pair.

The man was pronounced dead at a local hospital while the girl was not seriously injured.
