The Aiken County Coroner's Office and South Carolina Highway Patrol are investigating a fatal one-vehicle crash that occurred in Beech Island Sunday morning.

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 .

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. 

Ables said investigators with his office and the South Carolina Highway Patrol believe the crash happened several hours before officers were called to the scene.
