A Novato man who was pinned under his truck when it rolled onto him while he was repairing it earlier this month died Monday at Marin General Hospital, a Marin County coroner's office sergeant said.

The victim, Joel Meono, 44, died at 11:30 a.m. Monday, Sgt. Keith Boyd said.

Meono was fixing his 1992 Ford truck on Kelly Court around 3:30 p.m. on May 3 when the truck rolled backward, pinning Meono's upper torso under the front driver's side wheel, Novato police Lt. Keith Heiden said.

Novato firefighters responded when Meono's wife called for help, police said.
