AMARILLO, TX (KFDA) -

The Department of Public Safety is investigating the scene of a rollover accident about 3 miles north of Bushland at a curve.

Authorities say a 17 year old girl was ejected when she failed to negotiate the curve and her car rolled, ending up in a field more than 30 feet from the roadway. 

Officers say although not life-threatening, the girl does have serious injuries and has been airlifted to Northwest Texas Hospital. 

Police say the teen was not wearing a seat belt and speed was likely a factor in the crash.

An investigation into the accident is underway.
