The man killed in a fiery crash early Tuesday in the Parkway North high-occupancy lanes in Ross was dead before the vehicle caught fire, an autopsy shows.

The unidentified man was driving north on Interstate 279 at about 2:30 a.m. when his sport utility vehicle — possibly a Jeep Wrangler — veered left off the roadway and struck a barrier, state police said. The vehicle became airborne and rolled onto its roof before bursting into flames.

An autopsy shows that the man died of injuries sustained upon impact, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said. Efforts continued Tuesday night to make positive identification of the man, the spokesman said.

The HOV lanes reopened about 8 a.m.
