Left Eye's Mother Suing Mitsubishi Over Fatal Crash

The mother of Lisa

“Left Eye” Lopes has hit Mitsubishi with a multi-million dollar lawsuit

in U.S. District Court in Atlanta, Mitsubishi ignored claims that their Montero

SUV is prone to rolling over.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution

reported that Wanda Lopes – Colemon is taking the automaker to court after

her daughter, Left Eye of the best-selling group TLC, was killed when her Montero

flipped over in the Honduras.

An attorney representing

Colemon cited a 2001 Consumer Reports review that rated the Montero Limited

“not acceptable” due to its tendency to roll over.

Lopes and members of her

entourage were filming for a possible DVD just before impact as they drove down

a two-lane highway.

The camera captured something

in the road and Lopes swerving to miss it, causing the SUV to flip at least

two times.

Lopes was thrown from the

vehicle and died at the scene. The video tape was cut off just before impact.

Mitsubishi has filed a counter-suit

denying that they are responsible for the accident.

According to police

reports, Lopes was allegedly speeding, but her attorney stated there was insufficient

evidence to support the allegation.
