CEDAR CITY — Ryan Edward Allgaier, an Iron County corrections officer, has died of injuries suffered in a mountain bike accident three weeks ago.

"Officer Allgaier had lots of plans and lots of potential," said J. Lowe Barton, director of the Utah State-Iron County Correctional Facility.

"He was a good officer with an exceptional work ethic," Sheriff Dude Benson said. "We're saddened by his death and our prayers are with his family."

Allgaier, 28, suffered a head injury when he fell from his bike on the Virgin River Rim Trail. He was airlifted to a Salt Lake hospital, where he died Sunday.
