PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Three people were injured when a vehicle went off the Liberty Bridge ramp.

It happened before 8 p.m. when the vehicle went off the ramp and landed on Second Avenue about 40 feet below.

Part of Second Avenue was closed while police responded.

Pittsburgh Police Commander Scott Schubert said what caused the accident remains under investigation, but, he did not believe weather was a factor.

The Ford Ranger pickup was carrying two men and two women between the ages of 18 and 22, but all walked away from the crash.

The driver of the truck had to be extracted from the vehicle.

Charles Blanchard, who was in his office working nearby, reassured the driver that help was on the way.

Blanchard told KDKA’s Ralph Iannotti, “Definitely, God was there today, no one should have walked away.”

It’s unclear how the car went off the ramp.
