    The car overturned about 7:30 a.m. into the house on Mercer Road.

    When first responders arrived at the scene, the driver needed to be extricated from the vehicle. Police said he was taken to a Pittsburgh hospital.



    “After the patient was extracted from the vehicle, we discovered there were two people inside the house in the second story,” Patrolman Royce Deyber said. “We asked them to come out of the house and they then advised us that the stairway had been taken out.”

    A firefighter used a ladder to help bring the people in the house to safety, Deyber said.

    Investigators said it is believed that the driver was under the influence.
