PITTSBURGH – Two men who were examining a disabled vehicle on the Parkway East on Saturday are dead after another car smashed into the scene, causing them to fall dozens of feet to a street below.

The Parkway East outbound lanes were shut down from Grant Street to the Forbes Avenue exit for hours. The crash was cleared and the outbound lanes reopened after 8 p.m.

State police said the driver of a disabled vehicle got out to assess the problem in the right lane on an elevated section of the parkway in Oakland around 4 p.m.

A second vehicle pulled up behind to help out, and that driver joined the first as they stood between the vehicles.

A third vehicle passing by then struck the second vehicle, either knocking the men over the barrier at the edge of the expressway or causing them to leap over it to dodge the crash, police said. Channel 11 could see the second vehicle had extensive damage to the rear and had been spun around, and the third vehicle had extensive damage to the front.

Landen Manning Jones, 39, of Pittsburgh and Jason Hubert Jackson, 34, also of Pittsburgh, then fell to Second Avenue, which runs below that portion of the parkway, where they were struck by a fourth vehicle, state police said.

It was unknown if the men survived the initial fall.
