Weaverville Man Killed After Crashing Into Tree

A man from Weaverville was killed in a crash Sunday night. Just after 6 O’clock, the unidentified 58-year-old man was driving a 1974 Chevrolet eastbound on Lance Gulch Road. Just north of Browns Ranch Road, the Chevy drifted off the roadway and sheared off a small tree with its front end, then plowed into a larger tree, which brought the car to a sudden stop. The driver was not wearing a seatbelt and his chest impacted the steering wheel. Paramedics were treating him while waiting for a helicopter to arrive when he was pronounced dead. His name will be released after family is notified.
