A 10-year-old girl was killed on Monday after a four-inch rock crashed through the windshield of her father’s truck and struck her in the head.

Kambrie Horsley, of Idaho, was sitting in the passenger’s seat when a semi-truck driving nearby dislodged the rock from the roadway, causing it to hit the Horsley family’s vehicle.

Kambrie’s father, Brad Horsley, immediately drove the 10-year-old to the county hospital for treatment. 

According to the Idaho State Journal, the girl was life-flighted to Primary Children’s Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah where she died from her injuries.

Local authorities tracked down the semi driver who said he was unaware that his truck sent a rock flying at the Horsley’s vehicle.

Officials told the newspaper there was no wrongdoing involved and have deemed Kambrie’s death a tragic accident.

‘Words cannot describe the shock and sadness that we all feel,’ the Horsley’s wrote in her obituary. ‘We will miss her terribly, but we find peace knowing she is with her Father in Heaven and those family members beyond the veil.’

Kambrie’s family said she was ‘full of life and love and always up for an adventure’. She loved animals, dance and all sports, including skiing and surfing. 

Although she was the middle child, her family says she always made sure to be seen and heard. She was a role model to her younger sisters and had a ‘happy countenance’ about her.

‘She brought such joy to us all and there is a hole in our family until we get her back. She was simply the perfect little girl,’ her obituary states. 

‘Our hearts are broken but, we know she would want us to celebrate the wonderful life we had with her. Every day was a gift, and we can’t wait until we are reunited with our sweet, spunky, happy, driven little angel.’

Kambrie is survived by her parents, Brad and Kristen, and five siblings: Kyler, Hallie, Ethan, Blakely and Jordyn. She also has several grandparents and extended family members.
