BOUNTIFUL — Police have identified a Bountiful man who was killed Wednesday when a truck he was working on slipped and came down on top of him.

Police responded when a driver spotted a truck on top of someone in a driveway at 934 N. 275 West on Wednesday morning. Ron Wood, 57, died within minutes of the bystander stopping and calling 911, Bountiful Police Lt. Dave Edwards said.

Investigators believe Wood was performing maintenance under the truck when it somehow collapsed onto him and a tire rolled over him, Edwards said. It wasn't known Wednesday how long he had been under the truck when the passerby noticed him.

The initial investigation revealed no indication of foul play, Edwards said.
