Man injured while working on SUV dies

THURSDAY, JULY 30, 2009, 3:04 P.M.

A Mead-area man has died from injuries suffered July 22 when he was trapped and dragged beneath a disabled SUV he was trying to fix.

Timothy Carl Jackson, 50, died overnight Wednesday at a Spokane hospital, where he was being treated.

His dark green Ford Explorer was not running in the eastbound lane of Day-Mount Spokane Road east of U.S. Highway 2 when it was struck from the rear by a Honda Accord driven by Cameron James Stevenson. The lights or flashers on the Ford were not operating, Spokane County sheriff’s deputies said.

The force of the impact pushed the Explorer forward, causing Jackson to be thrown beneath the vehicle and dragged about 100 feet. Jackson’s wife was inside the Ford and was not injured.
