Emergency responders found a car on its roof with a man dead inside when they arrived at the scene of a crash on the ramp to the Fort Duquesne Bridge on Tuesday, May 14, 2019.

A man died early Tuesday morning after losing control of his car and crashing on the ramp to the Fort Duquesne Bridge, according to police.

At about 1:30 a.m., Pittsburgh police, fire and EMS crews responding to a report of a single-vehicle crash on the bridge ramp near the intersection of Allegheny and Ridge avenues on the North Shore found the car on its roof.

Police found a woman who was a passenger outside the car and the man dead inside.

The woman, whose name was not released, was taken to Allegheny General Hospital in the North Side and is in stable condition.

Joshua E. Wine, 30, of Zelienople was pronounced dead at the scene by the Allegheny County Medical Examiner’s Office.

Police said the vehicle was traveling from Reedsdale Street toward the bridge before the driver lost control and crashed on the ramp, according to initial findings by the bureau’s Collision Investigation Unit.

The on-ramp and Allegheny Avenue were reopened around 5 a.m.

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.
