Keila Ruby Flores 33 of Waco Texas

A Texas woman died Saturday after someone reportedly threw a large rock from a railroad overpass, hitting the car's windshield and crushing her while her boyfriend and children sat helplessly inside the vehicle.

Keila Flores, 33, was riding in a auto with her three children and boyfriend when an unknown person threw a "large rock" off of a railroad overpass, which crashed through the car's windshield Saturday night, according to ABC News.

The rock broke through a vehicle's windshield, significantly injuring the front seat passenger.

"All of the sudden, something just strikes the window".

"It happened so quick", Rodriguez told KCEN.

"I flipped on a light, and that's when I [saw] where the rock struck her".

Keila Ruby Flores and her family were approaching this overpass on Interstate 35 when someone threw a rock onto the highway below striking their car say police

Rodriguez said he began "shaking" her to rouse her as the couple's daughter implored him to call 911, he told the station.

Paramedics took Flores to Baylor, Scott and White Hospital, where she died of her injuries at 10:32 Sunday morning.

Two days after her death, Rodriguez remembered Flores for her joy of life, her perpetual smile and as a great mother.

The rock was allegedly thrown off of a railroad overpass on the Interstate between exits 303 and 305, say police in the release. "She was (a) strong person who always got to the point and never beat around the bush".

Rodriguez also said he wanted to thank the good Samaritan who offered help immediately after the incident. "I just want to thank that individual in person for helping me".
