A 6-year-old Central Texas girl who was seriously hurt in a rollover accident was in a local hospital Monday.

The girl along with several other people was riding in a vehicle that rolled over and crashed at around 2 p.m. Sunday on FM 1637 near Coopers Crossing, Department of Public Safety Sgt. Dave Roberts said.

He said it was raining at the time of the accident.
