Press Release – Accidental Death

On Sunday, November 10, 2019, at approximately 4:41 pm deputies from the Ketchum Police Division of the Blaine County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report that a car had fallen on an individual at the Andorra Village in Ketchum, Idaho.

Deputies determined that Jhon Miguel Lopez-Macha, age 37 of Ketchum, had been seen working underneath his vehicle, a 1993 red Ford Explorer, by himself that afternoon. At some point, his family noticed he was not responding when they went to speak to him. Lopez-Macha transported to St. Luke’s Wood River Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased. At the completion of the investigation, deputies have determined the jack Lopez-Macha was using to lift up his vehicle had given way causing the vehicle to fall on him and his accidental death.
