SALT LAKE CITY -- Flags are flying at half staff across the state Saturday in honor of a Sevier County sheriff's sergeant who was killed while helping a driver earlier this week.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert ordered all state offices to lower their flags until sunset Saturday in remembrance of 36-year-old Sgt. Franco Aguilar.

Sgt. Aguilar was investigating a crash on Interstate 70 late Thursday night when an SUV hit the car that crashed and knocked him off Fish Creek Bridge. He fell 250 feet to his death.

Funeral services for Sgt. Aguilar will take place at the Snow College South Campus in Richfield on Wednesday, May 5 at noon.
