A man died after he exited his vehicle inside a 24-hour car wash in California and became trapped among its machinery, police said.

The victim, Rene Tactay Jaime, entered the Pearl Car Wash on East Valley Parkway on Friday around 11:45 pm, according to a press release from the Escondido Police Department. Shortly after the start of the cleaning process, the 56-year-old tried to exit his 2014 Scion XB, which then rolled forward and pinned him inside the carwash.

An alarm blared for nearly a half hour before another patron arrived the business and called authorities. His vehicle was still in drive when they arrived.

Responding officers managed to free the man and administered CPR, according to Fox 5 San Diego. He was rushed to Palomar Medical Center, where he died a short time later.

The carwash features an automated side with a self-service machine, which allows drivers to maintain control of their vehicle, moving and stopping based on lights and signs.

The medical examiner has not revealed a cause of death and an investigation into the matter is underway.
