Behringer was driving a 2002 Honda Civic, heading north on Market Avenue just south of Lake O'Pines at around 8 a.m. She lost control, slid into the southbound lanes and was hit by a 2016 Dodge Grand Caravan.

Behringer died at the scene. The other driver was checked out and released at the scene.

Police say Behringer was not wearing a seat belt; the other driver involved was wearing a seat belt.

Supt. Kevin Tobin said Behringer was a junior but was going to graduate early with the senior class. He said there are counselors and local clergy at the school to speak with students.

"This is a devastating loss," he said.

All athletic events scheduled for Tuesday have been canceled.

A parent of a student at the high school says the news is devastating and a shock and that many students areĀ  heart-broken.

He said the 16-year-old was very bright and a "good person."
