The 16-year-old girl who died after crashing her motor scooter Thursday morning has been identified as Nicolette Vares.

Police say the Kapolei teen and her father were riding on the Likelike Hwy. on-ramp to the H-3 Freeway when she lost control and hit a guardrail. Police say she may have been speeding.

According to police, Vares had a motorcycle learner’s permit. Because she was with her father, it was legal for her to be riding a motor scooter.
