A man was taken into police custody Saturday morning after the vehicle he was driving overturned in Pittsburgh’s Hays neighborhood, killing his passenger.

According to investigators, it is believed that the driver of the Jeep Grand Cherokee lost control and hit a parked car before overturning off of Mooney Road shortly after 1 a.m.
