HORROR: Arizona Dad Dies After Being Pinned Under Car For Hours as Bystanders Robbed Him Instead of Helping

A Phoenix father died in a freak accident after getting trapped under his car on Monday.

Rather than helping the trapped man, bystanders robbed him.

Jeronimo Garcia Guerra was driving his wife to work on Monday when their car broke down. After getting picked up, Guerra drove his daughter’s car back to the broken-down car and attempted to make some repairs when the jack holding up the vehicle collapsed.

Guerra was pinned under the vehicle for hours before police arrived. Witnesses robbed Guerra as he was trapped.

“After everything, they went through my dad’s pockets and my mom’s car and they saw them leave with my car,” the victim’s daughter Monica Garcia told AZ Family.

“It’s hard because I would never do that to somebody. I could care less about my car but at least they could have stayed there with him until help came,” Monica Garcia told the outlet. “At least I would’ve known he wasn’t by himself all day until somebody decided to say oh my god he’s not moving.”

Police have not made any arrests yet.

AZ Family reported:

A Phoenix family is mourning the loss of their dad, who died in a freak accident Monday after he was pinned under his car when it fell on top of him.

Instead of helping, police say some people who saw what happened stole from him and took off.

Jeronimo Garcia Guerra was driving his wife to work Monday morning when her car broke down in a parking lot near 23rd Avenue and Thomas Road.

After they were picked up, he drove his daughter’s car back to make repairs to the broken-down car.

“He brought a certain sense of comfort,” said Jerry Garcia Jr., who now only has memories of his father.

Police believe the jack holding the car up collapsed, causing the car to crash down on top of him.
