Fifty-four-year-old Glen Allen Detienne was working on the van in the driveway of his home when the accident happened Thursday.

Police say the parking brake was not on and the front wheels were not blocked. When Detienne disconnected the drive shaft, the van rolled off the ramps and pinned him underneath.

The fire department used inflated air bags to lift the van.

KBRF-AM reports the death was ruled accidental.
