STAFFORD — An 11-year-old Stafford girl died as her horse collided with a vehicle on Mount Olive Road on Sunday evening, according to the Virginia State Police.

Yasmine De Leon rode the horse on farmland parallel to the road at about 7:45 p.m. when it became “spooked,” said state police spokesman Sgt. Les Tyler. It ran into the road and collided with a 2011 Kia sport-utility vehicle, driven by Kristina Abel, 40.

Yasmine, who attended Hampton Oaks Elementary School in Stafford, was taken to Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg where she died at about 10 p.m. of injuries sustained in the accident.

The horse died at the accident site.

No violations by the driver are suspected, Tyler said. Abel was also taken to Mary Washington Hospital.

The case remains under investigation.
