GARDAI have launched an investigation after a man died when the car he was working on collapsed on top of him.
The accident happened at Castlecarn, Kilcar, Co Donegal around 8.30pm last night.
The 28-year-old man is believed to have died at the scene despite attempts to save him.
His name has not been released until relatives living abroad have been informed of the tragedy but he comes from a well-known local family.
A full investigation is being carried out into the incident led by Gardai from Carrick, said a Garda spokesman.
The scene of the incident has been sealed off.
“He comes from a well-known family and they are obviously devastated,” said one local man today.
“He was an extremely popular young man.”
