TEMPLE, Texas — Temple police want to know who threw a rock off a railroad overpass Saturday night, resulting in the death of a 33-year old woman in Texas.

Investigators say it happened just before 9 p.m. Saturday night as Keila Ruby Flores and her family of five traveled northbound on Interstate 35 between exits 303 and 305 in Texas.

Police say someone threw a rock from the overpass to the interstate below, hitting Flores' car, breaking the windshield and hitting Flores, who sat in the front passenger seat.

Officers responded to an unknown injury call near the 2600 block of I-35 and Belair Drive where they found Flores and her family.

Paramedics took Flores to Baylor, Scott and White Hospital, where she died of her injuries at 10:32 a.m. on Sunday. An autopsy will determine her exact cause of death.

Detectives have no information on a suspect and ask anyone who may have seen anything to call Temple police, or Bell County Crime Stoppers.
