1 killed in Pittsburgh rollover crash

The driver of a Jeep Wrangler was killed after striking a parked car and rolling over on Penn Avenue in Lawrenceville on Thursday, Sept. 27, 2018.

One man died in a rollover crash Thursday morning in Pittsburgh’s Lawrenceville neighborhood, according to police.

The driver of a Jeep Wrangler was traveling inbound on Penn Avenue at about 8:30 a.m. when he struck a parked car and rolled over near Foster Way, said Public Safety spokeswoman Alicia George.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the man killed as 58-year-old Edward Schrenker.

The parked car was pushed into two other parked cars, she said. The parked cars weren’t occupied.

Schrenker was taken to UPMC Presbyterian where he was pronounced dead about an hour later.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

Penn Avenue reopened to traffic shortly before 1 p.m.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
