A Utah teen died on Monday after being hit by falling rocks while vacationing with her family at Glacier National Park in northwest Montana.
The family was riding in their vehicle around 7 pm when multiple rocks came crashing down from a nearby mountain, landing on the vehicle’s roof and shattering the rear window, park officials said.
Officials said the 14-year-old girl died before she could make it to the hospital.
“A.L.E.R.T. air ambulance responded, but was unable to airlift the girl because of her unstable condition,” the park said in an official statement. “Flight paramedics traveled with her via ground ambulance to Kalispell, MT. The girl died while being transported to a local hospital.”
Two other children were also taken to a hospital with minor injuries and two adults suffered “significant” bruising.
