"She was slowing down coming through Montgomery because OnStar took control of the vehicle," Montgomery Police Sgt. Becky Lehn said. "So she was slowing down probably in 50s, 60s going through and then pulled over at the high school. I believe the car stalled."

The 12-year-old will be charged with evading arrest, according to authorities.
