Cave In Rocker Caleb Scofield Dies in Fiery Car Crash

A man who died in a fiery crash on a New Hampshire turnpike is being remembered as a gifted musician.

Sergeant Bryan Trask of Bedford State Police told the Mirror: "It appears the subject was trying to change lanes right before they entered the toll plaza and didn't make the lane quite clear and crashed into the barrier". Authorities are investigating the cause.

Scofield remained in the group through all five of the group's studio albums and through the band's evolving sound, which he helped shape with his growling vocals and melancholic bass tones. They released their debut album, Until Your Heart Stops, on Hydra Head that same year.

Scofield joined members of Converge and Isis for the post-metal sludge supergroup Old Man Gloom. The bassist for bands Cave In and Old Man Gloom died nearly instantly, as his vehicle crashed into the booth at high speeds. Cave In went on hiatus in 2006, but when they reunited for years later, Scofield rejoined the band.

A fundraiser has been set up to raise money for Caleb's wife Jen and their two children, Sydney, 7, and Desmond, 10.

"We are shocked and devastated by the passing of Caleb Scofield", Cave In wrote to fans on social media. "Thank you for your support, and for understanding how hard this is for us".

"I'm not ready to talk about this yet, but I just wanted to say that Caleb will always be in my heart", Aaron Harris wrote on Instagram, along with posting a photo of them together. "His loss will be felt far and wide, most deeply by his wife and children", Sadie continued.

"Saddened by the sudden death of Caleb Scofield".

A memorial fund to aid Scofield's family established yesterday now stands at $55,000 of a stated $1,000 goal.
