A Jeannette man died when the tractor-trailer he was driving overturned at 9:42 a.m. Monday on the Parkway West in Moon, authorities said.

The Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victim as John Tepke, 48. The three lanes where the accident occurred, approximately a quarter-mile before the I-376 Business Loop, exit 57, westbound, were closed for about seven hours.

State police said a woman driving an SUV lost control of her vehicle and hit the tractor-trailer. The tractor-trailer hit the jersey barrier and swerved to the right on two wheels before tipping over, Trooper Robin Mungo said. The SUV driver was taken to a hospital, Mungo said.
