EL PASO, Texas - A man was killed while working on his truck in Central El Paso, police said.
Investigators identified the man as 65-year-old Ricardo Carlos.
Officers and fire medical services responded to the residence in the 2100 block of Arizona on a welfare check at about 3:40 p.m. on Wednesday, May 22, 2019.
The officers found Carlos' body pinned underneath a vehicle.
Crimes Against Persons detectives conducted the investigation and learned Carlos propped up his truck on a car ramp so he could work on the pickup.

Investigators found the parking brake was not set and tire blocks were not used to prevent the vehicle from rolling back.
