The Cumberland County coroner and Pennsylvania State Police are investigating a fatal rollover crash on the Pennsylvania Turnpike that happened around 5 a.m. Friday.

The single-vehicle crash occurred in the westbound lanes at mile marker 232.4, about two miles west of the Gettysburg Pike exit, in Silver Spring township, according to a news release from the coroner's office.

Coroner Charley Hall said a white Jeep Cherokee left the highway on the right side and rolled. The driver was ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle.

The driver's identity is being withheld until the next of kin can be notified.
