Family flees their own car accident
A family fled a scene of a rollover car accident in Bellmead. Police officers are now searching for them Tuesday morning.
Around 8:50 a.m., a man, a woman and a 5-year-old girl were reported to be in a 1997 white Buick foor door vehicle, traveling northbound on Interstate 35. Witness say they saw the car veer to the right.
The Texas Department of Public Safety trooper D.L. Wilson said that the vehicle then rolled over several times at mile marker 340, where it would eventually rest on top of it's roof. The woman and the child were ejected, Wilson said.
Witness told Wilson that they saw all three of the car's passenger who appeared to be bleeding. They left the Buick vehicle when a passerby offered them a ride to the nearest hospital. Wilson described the vehicle as destroyed.
Reports were told that around two miles down the road at interestion of Crest Drive and I-35, the man asked the driver to let his family out. The three ran from the passerby's vehicle and that's when the driver called 911.
The Buick was registered to a woman in Brenham, but officials have not yet confirmed whether the woman was the drive in the case.
“We are trying to locate them, but obviously somebody came and picked them up,” said Wilson.
