Fatal crash discovered after at least a day

SPRING CITY, Sanpete County — Utah Highway Patrol troopers are investigating a deadly car crash that wasn't discovered for more than a day.

UHP said a man driving on state Route 117 on Tuesday morning noticed some power lines sagging and decided to investigate.

"While looking at it, he noticed the car," UHP Trooper Cameron Roden said Wednesday.

The man discovered a car that had rolled several times. Inside the car, troopers said, they found the body of 34-year-old Garth Dean Aiken of Mount Pleasant.

"He was buckled in," Roden said, adding that it appeared Aiken died of injuries suffered in the crash as much as 36 hours before.
