CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Authorities in Charlotte are looking for the driver of a car they believe was involved in an accident that sent four people to the hospital, including two children.

The accident happened on November 11, just before 10 a.m. on the 5700 block of Brookshire Boulevard.

Police say a 1998 Honda Civic was traveling inbound on Brookshire Boulevard near Hoskins Road when the left tires ran off the road into the grass median. The driver then overcorrected and lost control, and the Honda slid sideways across the median into oncoming lanes.

A 2005 Ford Expedition was traveling outbound in the left lane of Brookshire Boulevard when the front driver's corner of the Honda struck the driver's front corner of the Ford nearly head-on.

The driver of the Civic was taken to Carolinas Medical Center with critical injuries. As of 2:45 p.m., she was listed in critical but stable condition.

The driver of the Ford and his two children were also transported to CMC, where they were treated and released.  

Detectives with the CMPD Major Crash Investigation Unit were called to the scene to conduct the investigation, and were told by witnesses who remained on the scene that another vehicle may have been involved in the collision.

Officials say a gold or tan colored Cadillac reportedly merged into the Honda's lane of travel, causing the Honda to run off into the median and lose control. It is unclear if the Cadillac and Honda made contact.

The Cadillac, occupied by a driver and front seat passenger, did not remain on the scene and was last seen traveling inbound on Brookshire Boulevard. The Real Time Crime Center provided a picture of a vehicle matching the description from a DOT camera near the area of the crash.

Anyone with information about this vehicle or the events of the collision is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (704)334-1600, or the Major Crash Unit at (704)432-2169.

    Asheville residents often see bears. The mountains’ largest city is the focus of a five-year study of urban bears that pass through or live in and around the town. Residents have reason to be wary around animals that can reach 500 pounds, sport inch-long claws and sprint at 35 mph, but they’re also mostly tolerant of them. Because no hunting is allowed, the city serves as a bear sanctuary.
