State Troopers Warn Parents of “Thrill Hill”

ThrillHill1State Troopers are getting the word out about a dangerous hill in the Tioga community.

ThrillHill2This was the scene January 27th when an SUV crashed, killing 2 teens.  Troopers say there were 7 teens in the SUV when the driver went airborne after crossing the hill.  Troopers are concerned because the hill is known among teens as “Thrill Hill”.

Grief counselors have been provided at the school.

Troopers emphasize this was not weather related.  None of the people in the car were buckled up, and the driver was 16 years old.  State police want to make sure parents are aware of these types of driving challenges which are often appealing to teens, but can be fatal.
