    A deadly crash where a car flipped multiple times closed a major roadway for more than five hours this morning.

    The driver, Edward Harre, was thrown from the vehicle after it struck a median resulting in it flipping over multiple times before coming to a rest on its roof, according to Pennsylvania State Police.

    Medics declared Harre dead at the scene, according to police.
