CSP says they got a call from a passerby around 7:30 Saturday morning.
An SUV went more than 100 feet down a ravine in Eagle County on Forest Service Road 700, or Red Sandstone Road.
Colorado State Patrol was still recovering the vehicle and the body Saturday afternoon.
The person who reported the accident had to drive several miles to make the emergency call because there was no cell phone reception in the area of the crash.
