SHARE 92-year-old man dies after being pinned under pickup

(HOMER GLEN) A 92-year-old man died Saturday after he was pinned underneath a Ford pickup at his southwest suburban farm.

James Nahser was at his home in the 14800 block of West 143rd Street in an unincorporated area near Homer Glen on Saturday afternoon, Will County sheriff’s spokeswoman Kathy Hoffmeyer said.

When his daughter returned from shopping, she parked the Ford F-350 in the driveway at the top of a small incline, went into a barn and spoke to her father for a few minutes, Hoffmeyer said.

He then left the barn, and a few minutes later the woman heard a “loud crash” and her father yelling. She went outside and saw the truck had rolled down the incline and hit a small silo, pinning her father under the front end of the truck, Hoffmeyer said.

The woman called 911, and paramedics transported Nahser to Silver Cross Hospital in New Lenox, where he died at 5:43 p.m., according to Hoffmeyer and the Will County coroner’s office.

The woman told police the ignition of the truck was off, but there had been some recent problems with the transmission, Hoffmeyer said.
