DELAND MAN KILLED IN APPARENT ACCIDENT WHILE WORKING ON CAR

A DeLand man was killed Wednesday in an apparent accident when a car he was working on slipped off a jack and pinned him underneath.

Jay D’Angiolillo, 41 (DOB 7/16/1979), was pronounced dead at the scene Wednesday morning at 1750 Hymore Drive, northeast of DeLand, despite witnesses’ and paramedics’ attempts to save him.

The accident happened around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday, when D’Angiolillo was on a friend’s remote property removing parts from scrap vehicles. One of those vehicles slipped off a jack that was placed on loose terrain, pinning him and causing severe injuries to his chest and head.

Two witnesses rushed to place another jack under the car, lifted it off D’Angiolillo, and began CPR while calling for help. Paramedics took over CPR minutes later, but pronounced D’Angiolillo deceased shortly before 8 a.m.

Detectives found no indications of foul play or suspicious circumstances during the initial stages of the death investigation.
