IRAAN BOY KILLED ON "ROLLER COASTER ROAD"
Many of you know about “roller coaster road,” a stretch of caliche road southeast of Roscoe between Highland and Lake Trammell where a big dip will take your breath away. Last Thursday night at about 9:30, Hilton Dean Goff, 18, from Iraan, was killed there when he was thrown from a pickup driven by Louis Green, 19, of Sweetwater. Green, recuperating in Rolling Plains Hospital, apparently lost control when he hit the dip at high speed, and Goff, unlike Green, was not wearing a seat belt.
