Johannesburg - A man died when a car he was washing rolled back and pinned him against a wall, Bloemfontein paramedics said on Saturday.

"Paramedics arrived on the scene and found the man lying on the floor near the wall, with the bakkie just a few meters away," ER24 spokesperson Derrick Banks said.

Paramedics assessed the man and found he had a chest injury.

He died on the scene, said Banks.

    The news say is from JHB and the paramedics are from Bloem, the accident was in China, I supose, come on News 24 can't you be 24 to 24 acurate?

      if you're a regular News24 user you'll notice they always precede the story with the location where the story was generated NOT where the incident occurred. Very confusing indeed.

      Maybe the reporter is sleeping in Kimberley

      Come on, it is normal to state the location from which the story was written.

    Such as death, always pity. The car had to wait until the man was behind? Cause obviously he was washing around the body as well.

    How did the bakkie get moved a couple of metres from the man on the ground? Illogical.
