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

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.
