A man was thrown from his sport utility vehicle before it landed on his legs early Tuesday morning in Penn Hills, police said.

Police Chief Howard Burton said the man, who he did not identify, hit an embankment and a utility pole before his vehicle rolled on Allegheny River Boulevard near Nadine Road about 1:30 a.m.

The vehicle landed on his legs and rescuers had to lift the SUV to free him, Burton said. Paramedics took him to UPMC Presbyterian where his condition was unknown, Burton said.

Penn Hills police are investigating the cause of the crash.
