Residents near Jefferson call the stretch of Valley View Road "roller coaster hill," because of the way it travels up and down hills.
Saturday night, 19-year-old Nicolas Jolly was driving his Honda nearly 100 miles an hour when it became airborne on the steepest hill. The car crashed into a utility pole ripping it apart. The engine was a hundred feet from the crash scene. Jolly was killed. The two passengers in the car survived. 19-year-old Douglass Curtiss has minor injuries and 19-year-old Juan Barrera was seriously injured.
