UNDERWOOD, N.D. (AP) - The North Dakota Highway Patrol says charges are pending against a 14-year-old girl who was behind the wheel of a vehicle that rolled and caused the death of a woman.

Authorities on Monday said the girl lost control of a sport utility vehicle Tuesday while traveling on a gravel road four miles west of Underwood. Authorities say the Underwood girl was driving too fast when she caused the vehicle to enter the ditch and roll.

The Highway Patrol says a 16-year-old girl and 33-year-old Randi Backer, both of Underwood, were not wearing seatbelts and were ejected from the vehicle during the incident. Authorities say Backer died Wednesday at a Fargo hospital from injuries sustained in the crash.

The Highway Patrol says alcohol was found at the scene of the incident.
