    A Massachusetts man has died after being pinned under a vehicle he was working on in his garage, police said Tuesday.

    Police and fire crews in Ipswich responded to a home on Avery Street around 7:30 p.m. to find a Volvo had pinned a man to the floor of the garage. He was freed from under the vehicle and taken by ambulance to Beverly Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

    The victim was identified as 45-year-old Stewart Rudnicki of Ipswich.

    Rudnicki is believed to have been doing work on the vehicle with a jack when it fell on him.

    A recent study suggests that a man's beard contains more germs than a dog's fur. All 18 men's beards studied by researchers at Switzerland's Hirslanden Clinic had higher levels of bacteria in them, compared to only 23 out of 30 dogs. Some beards had so much beard bacteria the men could get sick, the study says.

    "All indications at this time are that this was a tragic accident," Ipswich Police Chief Paul Nikas said in a statement.

    The incident is under investigation.
