Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes

On April 25, 2002, in  Honduras, while driving her sister and friends, Lopes swerved slightly to avoid a truck then immediately to the right as she tried to avoid an oncoming car.  Lopes died instantly, and was the only person fatally injured in the accident. She was 30 years old.

Engraved upon her casket were the words she sings in “Waterfalls”

“Dreams are hopeless aspirations, in hopes of coming true, believe in yourself, the rest is up to me and you.”

A documentary showing the final 27 days of Lopes’ life, titled The Last Days of Left Eye, premiered at the Atlanta Film Festival in April 2007

In 2003 her family began the Lisa Lopes Foundation – a charity dedicated to providing neglected and abandoned youth with the resources necessary to increase their quality of life.
