Penn State Junior Dies in Car Accident

Penn State junior Ethan “Beef” Wolfe was tragically killed in a two-car collision on Christmas Eve, Penn State’s department of Agricultural Economics, Sociology, and Education announced today.

Police say Wolfe was a passenger in a car driving on Brush Valley Road/state Route 192 in Miles Township, not far from State College. The driver lost control of the vehicle due to icy road conditions and veered into the opposing lane, where it was struck by a car. The driver and two other passengers suffered minor injuries. Wolfe was wearing a seatbelt.

Wolfe majored in Agricultural Sciences and was heavily involved in the ag community, serving as the President of the Penn State Agronomy Club and as a brother in Delta Theta Sigma. He was a local who graduated from Penns Valley High School and was active in the Centre Hall 4-H Ag Club.

“His special, infectious, heart-warming smile, and his open, carefree personality made him an instant friend to everyone he met,” his obituary read.

“We were deeply saddened to learn of Ethan’s tragic death,” said Penn State spokeswoman Annemarie Mountz. “I know he was very active in the University community, and his untimely death leaves a void that will be felt by many. Our hearts go out to his family and friends, and we offer our deepest sympathy to them.”

Our sympathies go out to all who knew Wolfe, who was, by all accounts, a great Penn Stater.
