A 15-year-old Texhoma OK 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 of Texhoma, 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.

She was pronounced dead at the scene.
