Seldon Hazelo, a 17-year-old Oak Harbor High School junior, was killed Saturday afternoon in an accident on Highway 20 near the intersection of Monkey Hill Road.

The State Patrol reported that Seldon was driving a 1993 Nissan Sentra south on the highway when he struck a guard rail on the right side. His car veered across the center line and struck an oncoming 2004 Dodge Neon, driven by 52-year-old Kurt Bauch of Oak Harbor.

Seldon died at the scene of the accident. An ambulance brought Bauch and his 14-year-old passenger to Whidbey General Hospital.

Seldon’s parents, Tim and Maria Hazelo, said their son loved being on the high school football team and was a big supporter of the successful Memorial Stadium bond election. They hope to raise enough money that some kind of memorial to their son can be incorporated into the stadium. Like a plaque or a photo of him.

“I would just like to see his name at the stadium someday,” Tim Hazelo said.

Seldon had a special relationship with his father, and unlike most teenagers, he wasn’t embarrassed to tell others. On the teenager’s Web site at, he wrote that he had two heroes in his life: NFL great Barry Sanders and his dad.

“He was my best friend,” Tim Hazelo said. “We were so close, more than anyone else.”

Seldon was on the track and wrestling teams, but he especially loved football. He was a running back on the Wildcats team. As a Seahawks fan, he was looking forward to having a Super Bowl party at his home with his family and friends.
