Woman dies after rock thrown from Texas overpass crashes through windshield

A Central Texas woman was killed Saturday night after a "large rock" thrown from an overpass crashed into the windshield of a vehicle carrying a family of five, authorities said.

Keila Ruby Flores, 33, was in the vehicle with her boyfriend, Christopher Rodriguez, and her three children when the rock came crashing through the car's windshield about 8:40 p.m. Saturday on Interstate 35, KWTX reported.

The family of five had just visited Keila Ruby Flores's brother in Round Rock, Texas, and was headed north to Waco on Interstate 35. Boyfriend Christopher Rodriguez was driving and the children, the youngest of them 6 years old, were in the backseat.

Flores was rushed to Baylor Scott and White Hospital and succumbed to her injuries the next morning, say police.

Rodriguez said he didn't know what had happened until he turned on the light in the auto and saw "where the rock had struck her", he told NBC affiliate KCEN-TV.

"An explosion just comes right through the window". I didn't know what it was. "I look over and I see Keila, and she is laying there unresponsive", he said.

Rodriguez recalled "shaking" his girlfriend to wake her up.

Rodriguez and the entire family have asked for the public's help in finding the person or people responsible, CBS News reports. Investigators are asking anyone who has any information to contact the Temple Police Department at 254-298-5500. An autopsy will be conducted, police said.
