(CBS/AP)-- State police say a man tried to kill himself twice on Interstate 79 in southwestern Pennsylvania before going to work.

Police say the 22-year-old man first tried to end his life by jumping out of a moving vehicle that was driving him to work in Canonsburg, about 15 miles south of Pittsburgh, around 7:45 a.m. Tuesday. The Washington, Pa. man is not being identified because of the nature of the incidents.

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 was since been flown to a Pittsburgh hospital.
