Nolanville police are searching for a speeding vehicle that may have contributed to the crash of an SUV carrying four people. 

Police said on August 19 around 3:35 p.m., they responded to the crash of a 2006 Ford Explorer that had veered onto the center median of Interstate 14. The vehicle reportedly struck the cable median barrier and overturned several times before coming to a rest in the median. 

Four people were inside the vehicle when it left the roadway, a 38-year-old woman, a 14-year-old, a 15-year-old and the driver, a 16-year-old.

Police said the 15-year-old was ejected from the vehicle on impact. The teen was not wearing a seat belt.

The 14-year-old and 15-year-old were taken to McLane's Children's Hospital. They have since been released.

The 38-year-old and 16-year-old were taken to Baylor Scott & White Hospital for their treatments. As on Monday morning, they remained in the hospital.

Police say they are searching for another vehicle that reportedly passed the Ford Explorer at a high rate of speed, which may have contributed to the accident. That vehicle has been described as a light blue or grey SUV, possibly a Lexus RX.
