Lisa Lopes Death

She died on 25 April 2002 in La Ceiba, Honduras while she was driving a rented Mitsubishi Montero SUV. She swerved slightly to avoid a truck (it is not clear if the truck was slow-moving or stationary) then immediately to the right as she tried to avoid an oncoming car.

That vehicle rolled several times after hitting two trees, throwing Lisa and three others out of the windows, and finally coming to rest in a ditch at the side of the road. Lisa died instantly of “fracture of the base of the cranium” and “open cerebral trauma,” and she was the only person fatally injured in the accident.

There was a cameraman in the front passenger seat who was videotaping at the time, so the last seconds leading up to the swerve that resulted in the fatal accident were recorded on video. Victims of the accident were taken to Liverpool Royal Hospital. Her sister Reigndrop Lopes was in the vehicle and survived the collision. She was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

She was buried at Hillandale Memorial Gardens in Lithonia.
