Plum Police believe it was dark outside when the driver of the Chevy Tracker was traveling in the 7000-block of Saltsburg road.

Jack Balson, 28, was going around the curve and was in the opposing lane of traffic when police say Balson tried to over-correct and then rolled his car off the road and through a sign.

The SUV landed upright, but the force ejected him from the window and out into the parking lot.

Friday morning before 7 a.m., an employee of Bradley’s Professional Auto Finish discovered Balson, who was not responsive, and then called police.

Police were able to keep a section of Saltsburg Road open during the morning rush hour commute, but had to shut it down for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner and then to re-construct the accident which could last into the early afternoon hours.

It’s unclear what caused the driver to lose control.
