Pittsburgh, Penn. (WTAE) -- Bystanders rushed to help a man who was hit and pinned under a vehicle in Squirrel Hill around 6:20 p.m. Monday along the 5800 block of Forbes Avenue.

Up to 10 people helped lift the car off the victim so the man could be rushed to a hospital.

At last word, the victim was in stable condition.

Officials say preliminary investigation suggests the man entered the road between two cars and the driver did not have time to stop.

The investigation is based in part on footage obtained by a Port Authority bus camera.
