Authorities say a 29-year-old Walhalla man has died after the SUV he was working to repair fell on him.
Oconee County Coroner Karl Addis says Richard John Reed Jr. died of asphyxiation just before 6 p.m. Wednesday.
Addis says Reed was working on replacing the drive shaft on a 2003 Lincoln Aviator at another man's Walhalla home when the SUV rolled off of a ramp.
Addis says Reed's wife saw the accident and tried to apply the SUV's emergency brake and put it in park.
Addis says the couple had been expecting the birth of their first child.
