AUSTIN, Texas - Officials say they are still searching for a passenger after a fiery crash near Lake Travis.
Police say early Saturday morning a truck hit a guardrail along FM 1431 in North Travis county. The car went airborne and then rolled several times before catching on fire. Police say the driver and passenger were both ejected from the truck.
Paramedics found the driver and took him by helicopter to a nearby hospital, but the search for the passenger is ongoing. As of Saturday night, the Travis County Sheriff's Office and STARflight helicopters were assisting in the search.
Sunday morning, crews reported the passenger has not been located after a thorough search. In a Facebook post, an official with Travis County ESD commented that it is possible the individual either fled the scene or they received incorrect initial information about the presence of a passenger.
The status of the driver is not known at this time.
