The mother of late TLC star LISA 'LEFT EYE' LOPES has slapped auto manufacturer MITSUBISHI with a lawsuit over her daughter's death.
WATERFALLS hitmaker Lopes died in 2002, when a 2001 Mitsubishi Montero she rented while on vacation in Honduras flipped over in an accident.
And her mother, WANDA LOPES-COLEMON, has now filed suit in US District Court in Atlanta, Georgia, accusing the company of ignoring warnings that the vehicle was prone to rolling over.
The lawsuit against the Japanese company and its North American subsidiary claims Lopes was driving at normal speed when she swerved and her sports utility vehicle flipped.
A Honduras police report indicates Lopes may have been speeding, but the Lopeses' attorney JEFF HARRIS says there is no evidence to support that.
He says, "I think that's going to be hotly contested by us because of the forensics."
Consumer Reports gave the 2001 Mitsubishi Montero Limited a "not acceptable" safety rating. Harris plans to use a study on vehicle rollovers to support his claim that the company should have warned consumers about the potentially fatal design flaw.
Mitsubishi's attorney, FRANK FAISON MIDDLETON IV, denies any wrongdoing on the part of the manufacturer.
