TRAVIS COUNTY, Texas (KXAN) — After searching for a passenger believed to be involved in a northern Travis County fiery crash on Saturday, the sheriff’s office says that person is safe and wasn’t involved.

The passenger was previously thought to be missing after a vehicle rolled over and caught fire. However, a TCSO spokeswoman says after a thorough search, they were given a name of the person and found that person to be safe.
