Tiny Idaho Town Shaken by Big Tragedy: 10-year-old Killed by Flying Rock
Idaho State News by Evan Green, Crime and Justice Bureau Chief
In Idaho, a young girl was killed when a rock crashed through her windshield.
Kambrie Horsley, 10, was seated next to her father, Brad Horsley, as he was driving a car in the southeast part of the state when a rock shot through the windshield and struck Kambrie in the head.
When her father arrived at the Oneida County Hospital, she was airlifted to Primary Children's Hospital in Salt Lake City. Kambrie was pronounced dead shortly after she arrived at the hospital.
Investigators think a semi-truck traveling on a parallel road ran over the rock, causing the rock to fly into the Horsleys' vehicle.
Sheriff's deputies have identified the semi-truck driver involved in the incident. The driver had no idea that the rock had been thrown into the vehicle by the truck.
An investigation determined this was a tragic accident, and that no one was guilty of any crime.
Malad City is a tiny town in Idaho with a population of just around 2,000.
In a heartbreaking post on social media, Brad Horsley said this.
