State police say a man twice tried to kill himself Tuesday morning on Interstate 79 in Washington County before going to work.

Police said the man, 22, first tried to end his life by jumping out of a moving vehicle that was driving him to work in Canonsburg about 7:45 a.m.

About a half hour later, police say the man stepped over a guide rail into the path of a tractor-trailer, which tried to avoid the man but knocked him out of his shoes.

Troopers from the Washington barracks say the man jumped up, grabbed his shoes, slid down a hillside and walked to work. He has since been flown to a Pittsburgh hospital.
