New details have emerged about a deadly accident in Manhattan where a man was crushed by a car in a parking lot.

The Department of Buildings (DOB) tells us it was a 43-year-old worker who was walking towards the lift yesterday when it collapsed and fell down on top of him.

The lift stacks four cars on top of each other.

NY1 spoke to a woman who believes she left the lot just moments before this happened.

“It's devastating. My husband told me this morning and I started crying and we were coming back from the Bronx yesterday there was an accident with an overturned car and I just said, ‘Between the pedestrians that are dying, the car accidents,’ I said, ‘It’s a horrible holiday season.’  It's just awful, it's just tragic."

Video from the citizen app shows the scene moments after the accident.

The medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death. The man's identity has not been released.
