Man injured by falling car

Marion resident Chris Hammond sustained serious injuries Tuesday when a car he was working under fell on him at about 4 p.m. behind his home at 111 N. Lincoln St., according to Marion police.

Officer Duane McCarty said the car was partially suspended with a “cherry picker,” which is an engine lift on wheels.

“We think the cherry picker tipped forward and the car toppled down on him,” McCarty said. “It landed on his chest.”

Hammond was transported to St. Luke Hospital and a Lifeteam helicopter transported him to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita. No information about his condition was available.
