    ong> - State police said a man twice tried to kill himself on Interstate 79 in southwestern Pennsylvania Tuesday before going to work.

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

    About a half-hour later, investigators said 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 said the man jumped up, grabbed his shoes, slid down a hillside and walked to work.

    He has since been flown to a Pittsburgh hospital. The man's name has not been released.
