VH1 airs Last Days of Left Eye documentary Sunday
This Sunday at 9 p.m. ET, VH1 will air a documentary that concludes with the accident that killed Lisa “Left Eye” Lopes in 2002.
Last Days of Left Eye, directed by Lauren Lazin, “is filled with exclusive and never before seen footage all captured in the final month of Lisa’s life,” according to VH1. It was produced “[w]ith the full support and cooperation of the Lopes family, [and] VH1 was granted unprecedented access to Lisa’s film archive and most private journals.”
That footage includes “Lopes suddenly swerving her car off a jungle road,” according to The New York Daily News. “At her family’s request, viewers won’t see the entire scene of the April 2002 accident, in which Lopes, the lone casualty in a car full of people, died from severe head injuries,” the paper says.
Lazin says, “There’s really not much more, other than the sounds of the other passengers screaming. Ultimately the decision [not to show more] was left to her family, and they were satisfied.”
