Tragedy has struck again and we’re sad to report that Cave In bassist Caleb Scofield has passed away at 39. Unionleader reported the news that he, who also played in Old Man Gloom and Zozobra, died yesterday (28th) afternoon when his truck burst into flames after crashing at high speed into the Bedford toll plaza. According to the report, police stated the truck was traveling north on the F.E. Everett Turnpike shortly after 1PM when he attempted to change lanes before entering the toll plaza and ended up crashing into the barrier.

While it’s difficult to digest this news, a youcaring account has been created to help with his funeral expenses.
