GARDINER, Maine (AP) — Maine State Police are investigating the death of a motorist in a crash that apparently went unnoticed for as many as five days.

Troopers say a passer-by noticed the crashed Honda Civic on Saturday on Interstate 295 in Gardiner.

Investigators believe the crash happened Dec. 28. That's the day 27-year-old Gardiner resident Ian Carter was last seen going to work. No one reported him missing.

Troopers say his car went into a median, became airborne and hit a tree before tumbling down a steep embankment.

The crash remains under investigation.
