8-17-05 - A Carter County man is dead after a car he was working on fell on top of him Wednesday morning. It all happened at home off Springdale Road around noon.
Thirty-nine-year-old Russel Dean McKinnon was replacing the steering arms underneath his stepson's car when it fell on him.
Deputies say instead of jackstands, McKinnon was using jackscrews to hold up the vehicle, and they just weren't strong enough.
