LAWRENCEVILLE (KDKA) – One person has died following a rollover crash in Lawrenceville Thursday morning.
The driver of a yellow Jeep hit a parked car on Penn Avenue and rolled his vehicle at 8:30 a.m.
The vehicle landed on its side blocking Penn Avenue at 39th Street.
Pittsburgh Police confirm the male victim was pronounced dead at the hospital after being transported by ambulance. He has been identified as 58-year-old Edward Schrenker, of Pittsburgh.
Two men, who were working nearby, ripped off the hardtop on the victim’s Jeep and try to help him. They told KDKA’s Meghan Schiller he was in and out of consciousness. They stayed with him until the EMTs arrived.
The section of Penn Avenue was closed for quite some time as they worked to acquire information on the owners of three damaged parked cars. They also worked to reconstruct the accident and take photos of the scene.
