Photos of the scene showed the man's Jeep leaned to its right with a makeshift jack appearing to have fallen down.

"The vehicle that the man had been pinned under had been jacked up safely and based on the positioning of the body and the tools found at the scene, the male appeared to be working on the vehicle at the time of his death", stated Sgt. Adam Tippetts of the Nye County Sheriff's Office.

A 6.4 magnitude quake that struck near Ridgecrest, Calif., on Thursday was felt in neighbouring Nevada.

Parts of Southern Nevada, including the Las Vegas valley and Pahrump, felt the impact of the natural disaster.

A new rupture in Earth's crust caused by a magnitude-7.1 natural disaster near Ridgecrest, California, is seen in this July 6, 2019, image by a Dove cubesat, operated by San Francisco-based company Planet.

Authorities said an investigation is ongoing and further information would be released once it is finished.

The 7.1-magnitude quake left a crack in the earth that's visible from space.

It's the first reported fatality of the quake, which struck at 10:33 a.m. near Ridgecrest, California, in the Mojave Desert, followed by a 7.1-magnitude temblor at 8:20 p.m. Friday.
