GREAT FALLS — The Lewistown Police Department said on Friday that a man died after a pickup truck he was working on fell on him.

Assistant Police Chief Jonathan Polich identified the man as Jason Haivala of Forest Grove in Fergus County; Haivala was 48 years old, according to a family member.

Polich said in a news release that emergency crews were called to the 100 block of SW Ash Street in Lewistown on Thursday just after 7 p.m. for a report of an unresponsive man trapped underneath his pickup truck.

The man was taken by ambulance to Central Montana Medical Center in Lewistown, where he was pronounced dead.
