A 10-year-old Tennessee girl is dead after flying debris during a storm hit the car she was riding in.

The accident happened Thursday evening in Piney Flats, near Johnson City, when high winds and heavy rain blew off part of a greenhouse roof.

The metal roof slammed into the passenger side of the car where the 10-year-old was sitting.  Her mother was also seriously injured.

Police say the accident was unavoidable, but they're still investigating the crash.
