An 18-year-old woman was found dead in Cache County late Wednesday.
A man noticed the underside of a vehicle protruding from a pond near 2600 West and 1800 South, in the College Ward/Young Ward area of the county, while checking on his livestock and, after getting some help, the man was able to use a backhoe to remove the vehicle from the pond.
Single occupant Haley Bury, of Wellsville, was found deceased inside.
Officials believe it may have been an accident, but an active investigation is still being conducted by the Cache County Sheriff's Office and the Utah Highway Patrol.
“It is with tremendous sadness that we announce the tragic loss of our beautiful Haley Nichole Bury, who was killed in a rollover auto accident yesterday evening in Cache Valley,” the family said in a statement. “Haley was a loving daughter, sister, cousin, niece and granddaughter. We express our appreciation for the support of our local law enforcement, emergency medical personnel, friends, and neighbors. Although we will miss her shining light, our strong belief in eternal families gives us great comfort as we grieve Haley’s passing.”
