IRON COUNTY — An overnight missing person search in rural Iron County ended when a 48-year-old woman was found dead Tuesday morning outside her vehicle. The woman’s car had rolled several times near the community of Beryl, Utah.
Carol Seger of Beryl reportedly left her home on Monday en route to the community mailbox a few miles from her home but did not return, according to a statement from the Iron County Sheriff’s Office.
A family member and friends along with Iron County Sheriff deputies, began searching for Seger throughout the night but were unsuccessful in locating her or her vehicle.
At approximately 5:57 a.m., Cedar Communications received a 911 call from a member of Seger’s family reporting that they had located the vehicle. During the initial scene investigation it was determined that Sager’s vehicle was traveling westbound on 5600 North when it left the dirt roadway, veered off into a vacant sagebrush field, and rolled over several times.
It appeared Seger was not wearing a seatbelt, was ejected and died at the scene of the rollover, according to the statement. At this time it does not appear that alcohol or drugs were a factor in this incident, however the crash is still being investigated.
Ed. note: The accident victim’s last name is Seger, not Sager; source error.
