A Weaverville man is the second to succumb to injuries sustained in a two-vehicle collision Oct. 29 near Douglas City. Foster T. Burns, 57, died Nov. 10 at Mercy Medical Center in Redding. Burns was a passenger in a car driven by Eldon Ray Wolfe, 84, which was involved in a head-on collision on Highway 299 east of Steiner Flat Road. Wolfe was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.
The driver of the other vehicle, Andrew John Carey, 50, also of Weaverville, sustained minor injuries, according to a California Highway Patrol release. Two passengers in Wolfe’s car, Charlene Joy Wolfe, 73, and Kimberly Jones, 50, sustained moderate and minor injuries, respectively.
No arrests were made after the collision and investigators said alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the collision.
Memorial arrangements will be made by Trinity Alps Funeral Home.
