A 6-year-old girl passed away from her injuries following a crash in south Charlotte that left multiple others injured. The two-vehicle crash occurred at roughly 5:46 p.m. on Tuesday, September 19th on East Arrowood Road.
The 15-year-old driver of a 2004 Toyota Corolla was speeding down East Arrowood Road when they crossed into oncoming traffic and struck a 2011 Volkswagen Routan head-on. The 6-year-old, Ariela Lopez, was a back-seat passenger in the Toyota and was taken to the hospital, along with the driver and a front-seat passenger, due to injuries from the crash.
The driver and a front-seat passenger in the Volkswagen were also taken to the hospital with minor injuries. 24 hours after the crash, Lopez was pronounced dead at Atrium Health Main at approximately 5:54 p.m. Wednesday. Excessive speed and failure to maintain a lane are contributing factors in the crash.
No charges have been filed at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
