ANDREW MAYERS probably worked under hundreds of cars in his job as an auto-body repairman.

But what started out as a routine job yesterday ended in the death of the 44-year-old of Easy Hall, St John, when the car under which he was working slipped off its props and crushed him, killing him instantly.

The freak accident sent a hush throughout the community, as people lined the road, some holding their mouths in disbelief, as word spread of Mayers’ death.

Just yards away at Mayers’ small workshop, where he had worked for over 20 years, the white Toyota Corolla which crushed his chest and head, and the three metal rims on which the car was resting, told the grisly tale.
