Update: This story has been updated to identify the deceased according to a release from the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
A high speed chase reaching upwards of 130 mph resulted in the death of a Wilson woman Thursday night in western Carter County near Wilson.
According to Captain Josh Taylor from the Wilson Police Department, the driver, Dawn D. Clayburn, 35, of Wilson, whose name was released late Thursday by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol, was ejected from a vehicle traveling approximately 100 mph while attempting to elude Wilson police.
Taylor said a Wilson officer had witnessed the vehicle nearly "rear end" another vehicle on Highway 70 near Dillard Road. Taylor said the officer then began following the vehicle before attempting to initiate a traffic stop on suspicion of driving under the influence, adding that the vehicle slowed as if Clayburn was preparing to stop before attempting to flee the scene.
Taylor said the chase extended down Highway 70, west of Tribble Road, before the vehicle nearly struck another vehicle moments before the fatal crash.
Taylor said Clayburn was pronounced dead at the scene.
Taylor confirmed that Clayburn was ejected from the vehicle.
"We don’t believe there were any passengers in the vehicle," Taylor said. "At this time we have no reason to believe anyone else was in the vehicle."
Further details of the crash are pending. The crash is currently under investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol.
According to OHP reports, Clayburn was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.
