A 32-year-old man who crashed his car on the way to propose to his girlfriend in Utah has died.

According to a family announcement, Adam Goodsell, of Preston, Idaho, died Sunday from injuries he suffered March 9, when his car rolled off a road near Providence.

ABC News reports that Goodsell was on his way to propose to the love of his life, Goldie Chaney, driving from Salt Lake City, Utah, to Logan Friday with the engagement ring in hand.

But 30 minutes after sharing the plans with his sister by cellphone from his car, Adam Goodsell found himself frantically calling 911 for help. The brakes had gone out.

“I’m going down Sardine Canyon,” Goodsell told the 911 operator. “My brakes went out. The gas pedal is stuck.”

The operator asked whether he was headed northbound or southbound. But there was no response on the other end of the phone because Goodsell had already crashed his Land Rover and been ejected from the car.

Authorities at the scene of the crash say Goodsell was not wearing a seat-belt when his vehicle left the roadway.

Though police reported that a preliminary investigation confirmed that brake failure played a role in the crash, what caused the vehicle to malfunction remains under investigation.

Adam was hospitalized for nine days with various head injuries, but his family remained optimistic. Goodsell’s girlfriend too, was positive, accepting the ring in the hopes that the man would wake up and be able to propose himself.

Sadly, he never did.

In a Facebook posting around 1pm Sunday on the “Support Adam Goodsell” web page, his family wrote:

“Thank you all for the love, support and prayers. Adam has returned to his heavenly father and mother. Rest In Peace Adam! You will always be in our hearts. We love you and are grateful to have had you in our lives.”

    key word is *may* have not necessarily would have. At any rate, do you really think now is a good time to be posting that? May his soul rest in peace and may his fiance see his face in every sparkle the ring produces in the bright sunlight.

    That is so sad that he died. A friend of mine died two years ago for the same reason when the breaks failed in the vehicle she was riding in. She was wearing a seat belt and she still got crushed by the boulder that the car rolled to a stop over.

    Shame on the people who want to comment about him like he's a lesson to be learned. Adam was a good man. You have no care for his loved ones. My husband was his friend. Adam will be missed. Before you comment think how his kids must feel reading your comments. If you can't be encouraging don't say anything. My heart brakes for everyone who is lucky enough to have known him.
