Initial accidentEdit

During the course of filming the documentary, Lisa and some acquaintances were passengers in a vehicle driven by her assistant. During the drive, a small boy ran out in front of the vehicle and was struck.[2][3] The child died later that night. Lisa thinks that the spirit that is haunting her killed the child by mistake.[4]

Lopes' deathEdit

The video of Lopes' fatal accident, taken from within the Mitsubishi Montero Sport that rolled over into the grass, shows only events in the vehicle prior to the moment of impact. The coroner who performed her autopsy ruled her death an accident.[5][6]
