A 21-year-old Boonsboro man who was described as having a “zest” for life was killed Sunday morning in a single-car crash on Interstate 70 in Fulton County, Pa., according to a family member and Pennsylvania State Police.

Bryan “Bud” Scott Nave was pronounced dead at the scene of the 1:34 a.m. crash in Brush Creek, according to a news release from state police.

Nave was driving a 2000 Chevrolet Cavalier in the left lane of westbound I-70 when the vehicle left the highway and struck a plastic traffic barrier, the release said.

Nave’s car also struck an embankment and rolled several times, the release said.

Nave, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the car, the release said.

A 43-year-old Greencastle, Pa., woman, who was a passenger in the car, was flown to a trauma hospital for a head injury, the release said. The woman’s name was not released.

Nave was a 2007 graduate of Williamsport High School and worked for C. William Hetzer Inc.

One of Nave’s aunts, Peggy Faircloth of Inwood, W.Va., said she thinks Nave started working at the construction firm this year.

Faircloth said she remembers Nave as being “fun-loving” and having a zest for life. She also said he was a typical young person who enjoyed “driving fast.”

Nave loved everything related to Ford Mustangs, and Faircloth said she used to talk to him about a Mach 1 Mustang she owned.

“He never saw that. That was back in the ’70s,” Faircloth said.

Nave also enjoyed hunting and fishing, according to his obituary.
