Man pinned for about 20 minutes during car repair in Riverside

RIVERSIDE – A Bloomsburg man was pinned for about 20 minutes under a car he was trying to fix in a driveway at a home off Kipps Run Road in Riverside.

The car fell on the chest of Nathaniel Gary Shingle, 33, of 74 Service Lane, at about 11:50 a.m. Wednesday at 10 Kipps Run Road. He was freed at about 12:10 p.m.

He was working on the car of his wife Kathleen after it had broken down.

Riverside Police Chief Ike Ramer said Shingle was using a scissor jack that collapsed.

Shingle’s wife wasn’t there at the time. His sister-in-law, whose last name is Radel, was there while he was working on the car and called 911 when the accident happened, Ramer said. The police chief said he understood Shingle’s wife does some type of work for the property owners.

Shingle was working on the plum-colored Mazda 620 which was sitting in the driveway.

Because of the narrow bridge leading to the house, fire trucks and a Danville ambulance weren’t able to drive to the scene, said Southside Fire Chief Butch Kriner. They were lined up along Kipps Run Road.

After fire and rescue personnel from Southside jacked up the car and freed the man, he was placed in the covered silver pickup truck of Danville fire policeman Dave Myers. Myers drove him to Kipps Run Road where he was transferred to a Danville ambulance and transported to Geisinger Medical Center.

At 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, he was reported to be undergoing treatment in Geisinger’s emergency department.  

Ramer said he didn’t see the property owners around. He didn’t have the names of the owners.
