Teen Falls Off Car Bumper, Dies

For the third time in six months a Pennsylvania school district is dealing with the death of one of its students.

The teenager died after falling from the bumper of a moving Jeep.

Oley Valley School District officials say junior Greg Hilbert, 16, died Wednesday after the bizarre crash in Ruscombmanor Township -- located about 10 miles northeast of Reading, Berks County.

Police say Hilbert was standing on the bumper of a moving Jeep. He reportedly fell off and hit his head on the road.

Hilbert's classmates remembered his passion for music and called him the resident guitarist.

School officials said Hilbert is the third student from the school district who has died since Christmas. Two Oley teenagers also made news when they crashed their car into a pond during a race with another vehicle.

Grief counselors will be on hand at the school Thursday.
