Authorities have identified the man who was found by a utility worker hours after a crash near Mustang Ridge early Monday morning.

The Department of Public Safety said the body of David Carnejo, 22, was found by a utility worker around 7 a.m. Monday. Emergency crews were initially called to the 11800 block of South U.S. 183, just south of Texas 45, around 2 a.m. Crews were unable to locate Carnejo after the crash, and a witness told EMS they saw a person leave the vehicle on foot.

Carnejo's vehicle struck a utility pole after the crash, which was the reason utility crews were on the scene.
