A Bountiful man was killed Thursday night when his truck rolled on Skyline Drive, throwing him from the vehicle.
Michael G. Carling, 28, was killed when he apparently failed to negotiate a curve in the road. His truck left the road and rolled down a canyon hillside.Carling's body was not discovered until Friday afternoon when two officers from the Davis County sheriff's office climbed down the hill to investigate the accident, said Davis County Sheriff's dispatcher Lori Duke.
The deputies went to the scene after two bow hunters reported seeing the truck 600 yards down a canyon hillside. The hunters reported the sighting at 11:30 a.m. Friday.
As the deputies were climbing down to the truck, they discovered Carling's body, 700 feet below the road, Duke said.
Deputies said the accident occurred sometime Thursday night.
