Pittsburgh Bureau of Fire, EMS, and Police from Zone 3 responded to the 3400 block of E. Carson Street for reports of a man dragged with his vehicle over a hillside just before 5 p.m.
Witnesses told first responders the man was trying push his disabled vehicle off the roadway and maneuver it into a parking space, when he lost control of it and was dragged over a hill near the CSX train tracks below.
Train traffic was stopped while firefighters and EMS Rescue crews stabilized the man before bringing him back up the hill.
He suffered a broken arm and lacerations to his face. He was conscious and alert when Medic 12 transported him to the hospital in stable condition.
The vehicle was towed from the scene.
