BALLINGER, Texas -

A 17-year-old Ballinger teen injured by a horse earlier this week has been declared dead.

Ashley Virden has been declared dead, but she remains on life support so her organs can be donated, a spokeswoman with Shannon Medical Center in San Angelo said Thursday night.

According to the Runnels County Sheriff's Office, Virden was bucked off a horse and then kicked in the head.

It happened while she was riding with her father near County Road 114 in southeast Runnels County.
