CUNNINGHAM, Kan. (AP) - A 15-year-old girl has died after authorities say she led police on a chase that began in Pratt County and ended in Kingman County.

According to a report from the Kansas Highway Patrol, 15-year-old Rebecca Vandermerwe was erratically driving a car with Oklahoma license plates Sunday morning when they tried to pull her over.

Authorities say Vandermerwe sped off and led police on a chase reaching more than 100 mph. According to the report, Vandermerwe lost control of the vehicle as the car went down the shoulder of an exit ramp and rear-ended the trailer of a semitrailer south of Cunningham. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

The driver of the semitrailer was not injured.
