Authorities on Monday pursued a 13-year-old girl in a high speed, 100 mph car chase in Nebraska.

An 11-year-old boy rode shotgun throughout the incident, which began around 9:35 a.m. A Nebraska State Patrol officer noticed the Nissan Pathfinder traveling at 35 mph on the interstate, the New York Post reported. The chase began when the officer attempted to stop the car. Vehicles reportedly exceeded 100 mph during the chase.

The chase, which lasted roughly 16 minutes, saw authorities successfully stop the vehicle and secure both children. Inside the car, they also discovered a gun and some marijuana.

The two children both came from Colorado and have been placed in protective custody. It is unclear if either will faces charges and the relationship between the pair is not public as of press time.
