A 6-year-old Utah girl was killed Monday in a "freak accident" after being struck by a golf ball on an Orem course.

According to Lt. Trent Colledge with the Orem Police Department, the ball struck the girl, who was about 18 meters away, in the back of the head at the base of her neck.

The girl died several hours later after being airlifted to a Salt Lake City hospital, KSTU reported.

'She loved doing it and had a good time with it all, ' Smith said to KSL.

Police did not identify the girl, but her family has set up a GoFundMe page for Aria Hill, the daughter of Talysa and Kellen Hill, to raise money for funeral and medical costs.
