The Allegheny County medical examiner's office has identified the man killed early Tuesday morning in a violent crash along Interstate 279 in Ross.

Stephen Quinn, 26, of Newburyport, Mass. died of injuries to the head and chest area in the crash. It took investigators several days to identify him because his body was so badly burned.

Pennsylvania State Police said Mr. Quinn was traveling north in the HOV lanes at 2:28 a.m. Tuesday when his vehicle, possibly a Jeep Wrangler, hit a barrier, went airborne and rolled onto its roof, coming to rest in the median.

The vehicle burst into flames with Mr. Quinn still inside. He died at the scene.

State police are investigating the cause of the crash.
