Sep. 18—A Georgia man is dead following a single vehicle crash in Aiken County.

Paul E. Marsh Jr., 45, of Martinez, Ga. was pronounced dead at the scene from blunt force trauma after his vehicle was found overturned in a drainage ditch along the 1400 block of Sand Bar Ferry Road Sunday afternoon.

Aiken County Coroner Darryl Ables said officers believe Marsh was driving a 2005 Dodge Dakota east on Sand Bar Ferry when the vehicle ran off right side of the road, struck a guardrail, and overturned.
