A speeding driver was killed Monday when he crashed his car in East Harlem — causing it to flip over and fling him from the moonroof, according to cops.
Joseph Edlawn, 34, was heading north “at an apparent high rate of speed” on the Harlem River Drive around 1:40 a.m. when he attempted to take the East 125th Street exit, authorities said.
As Edlawn continued whizzing down the exit ramp, his car slammed into the curb, causing it to overturn, police said.
The vehicle rolled over several times, crossing into the northbound Second Avenue ramp to the parkway, before finally landing on its roof, police said.
Edlawn, who did not have his seatbelt fastened, was ejected from the moonroof as the car flipped, police said.
Responding officers found him with trauma all over his body, and EMS rushed him to Harlem Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
His 28-year-old passenger — whose seat belt was fastened — escaped nearly unscathed, only suffering some minor scrapes.
She was taken to Harlem Hospital in stable condition.
The NYPD’s Highway Collision Investigation Squad is probing the crash.
