A Massachusetts man has died after being pinned under a vehicle he was working on in his garage, police said Tuesday.

Police and fire crews in Ipswich responded to a home on Avery Street around 7:30 p.m. to find a Volvo had pinned a man to the floor of the garage. He was freed from under the vehicle and taken by ambulance to Beverly Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
