LINCOLN, Neb. — Authorities have released the name of a woman who died after being pinned under a car she was repairing in Lincoln.

Police identified the woman Sunday as 40-year-old Darcy Johnson. Authorities say Johnson was working under a sedan propped up on a jack in an apartment complex parking lot when the car fell off the jack around 1:20 p.m. Saturday, pinning her underneath.

Emergency responders pulled her from under the car and tried to resuscitate her, but she was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later.
