MANKATO — A Mankato man was killed when a vehicle fell on him and crushed him.
Daniel Marthaler, 54, was working on a vehicle Friday at a residence on Cougar Drive. The vehicle had been hoisted up on a jack and the jack apparently failed, said Dan Schisel, associate director of the Mankato Department of Public Safety.
A relative found the man deceased at about 5:20 p.m. The cause of death has been ruled accidental.
