PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ A man has died after police say he jacked up his car to fix his muffler and the car fell on top of him.        

Police say the man died from his injuries after being trapped under his car on West Allenton Road just after 9 a.m. Thursday.
       
Police say the man was middle-aged, with a Connecticut registration. His name was not immediately released.
       
Two police officers tried unsuccessfully to lift the two-door BMW convertible. One was treated locally for a minor wrist injury. Firefighters used airbags to raise it. The man was taken to Rhode Island Hospital.
