A woman died Sunday morning after a rock thrown from an overpass above Interstate 35 in Temple on Saturday night broke through a vehicle’s windshield and caused significant injuries to the passenger, Temple Police said in a news release.
Police spokeswoman Cpl. Shawana Neely said officers responded at about 8:41 p.m. Saturday to an injury call near the 2600 block of I-35 and Belair Drive. A caller said a large rock was thrown from the railroad track overpass into the vehicle of a family of five traveling northbound on the interstate between exits 303 and 305.
Neely said the rock entered the vehicle and struck the front seat passenger, 33-year-old Keila Ruby Flores.
Flores was transported to Baylor Scott & White-Temple, where she later died Sunday morning.
Neely said police currently do not have a suspect.
