CRANBERRY, Pa. - A rollover accident on Interstate 79 north snarled traffic Wednesday afternoon near the Cranberry exit.

A witness told Channel 11 News that a driver was going very fast on I-79 north when that driver veered across the median and flipped several times before landing in the southbound lanes.

Mike Dunn, who witnessed the crash, said the car narrowly missed hitting others as it flipped.

"It rolled over at least eight times. It missed a Dodge Ram by inches," Dunn said. "He was coming onto the on-ramp from a red light stand-still. He passed like, three or four cars, so he had to be going like 80 mph."

Officials at the scene said the driver, whose name hasn't been released, was conscious and alert after the crash.

Police are investigating whether the driver had a medical emergency or what caused the incident.
