By Paul Johnson

(CNN) - A sad story emerging out of utah this morning -- where a driver spent weeks trapped in his wrecked vehicle.
A hiker spotted this vehicle more than a month after the driver crashed in a desolate stretch of eastern utah.
Police say 54-year-old David Welch spent days -- possibly weeks -- trapped inside the flipped SUV.
He apparently kept a journal and wrote notes to his wife and four sons until he died.
Utah high patrol says those letters are now with Welch's family.
Investigators suspect Welch apparently fell asleep at the wheel and crashed.
