The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office has identified the man killed in a crash Sunday night in Beechview.

Paramedics pronounced Edward Stiefel, 37, of Knoxille dead at the scene along West Liberty Avenue near Wenzell Avenue just after 10 p.m., a spokesman with the medical examiner's office said.

Stiefel was speeding down the hill when he lost control of a sports utility vehicle, hit an embankment and rolled several times, collision investigation Sgt. Dan Connolly said. Stiefel was ejected from the vehicle.

Witnesses and police officers helped push the SUV upright so rescuers could reach the passenger, who has a broken leg and is in critical condition at UPMC Mercy, Uptown, Connolly said.
