Acadia Parish Sheriff's deputies say a 60-year-old Iota man working underneath his truck was killed when the jack he used to elevate the vehicle slipped, pinning him under the vehicle.

Deputies say Steven Pousson was working underneath the truck Saturday morning around nine o'clock when the accident happened.  The truck was used to transport a welding machine and gear.

The accident happened on Tulip Road near Iota in northwest Acadia Parish.

Investigators say Pousson was pronounced dead at the scene by the Acadia Parish Coroner's Office.
