Mechanic dies in car collapse

A MECHANIC and rally enthusiast died after a car he was working on collapsed on top of him yesterday.

The 54-year-old was named locally last night as Jim Millane, of Corlea, Co Clare.

Two units of the Shannon fire brigade and a paramedic team had raced to man's home after the accident but the father-of-four was pronounced dead at his home, near Sixmilebridge, yesterday morning.

Gardai are treating the incident as a tragic accident. The Health and Safety Authority launched an investigation into the accident.
