Eldon Ray Wolfe, an 86-year-old resident of Weaverville, has been identified by authorities as the deceased in an automotive collision that occurred on October 29 in Trinity County. Mr. Wolfe was driving a Subaru Legacy sedan on Highway 299 near Highway 3 at roughly 9:00 p.m. when a GMC Sierra driven by Andrew John Carey, 50 and also a resident of Weaverville, crossed over double yellow lines into opposing traffic and had a head-on collision with Mr. Wolfe’s Subaru. Authorities say they believe that Mr. Carey was experiencing a medical episode, such as a seizure, at the time of the event. Mr. Wolfe apparently died at the scene. The driver of the SUV and four other people who were passengers in both vehicles were treated for a variety of apparently non-life-threatening injuries. The deadly mishap is under investigation.
