Stella Grace Bright: Daughter of Lowe's Top Executive Dies in Horrific Porsche Crash While Speeding Near Her Family's $2.6 Million Mansion

This tragic incident took place at around 3:20 am on a Saturday, less than two miles away from her family's luxurious $2.6 million lakefront property.

The daughter of a senior Lowe's executive died after crashing her Porsche supercar into a tree early on Saturday morning, allegedly while she was speeding. Stella Grace Bright, 16, who was with her twin sister Olivia, was driving her 2014 Porsche 911 near Lake Norman, North Carolina when she veered off the road and crashed into a rock landscaping wall.

Bright died immediately, while two others in her car were hospitalized. One of the two passengers was seated in the back of the Porsche, although it was a two-seater vehicle and not designed to accommodate rear-seat passengers. Bright and the other front seat passenger were both in their seat belts.

"I don't know how I'm going to live another day without you u (sic) meant the world to me and still do. You didn't deserve to go this soon you really didn't," Olivia wrote.

"I won't stop thinking about you and I know you want me to be happy so I'm going to try to be happy just for you."

In a news statement issued after the collision, North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Christopher Casey refrained from disclosing the exact speed at which the teenager was traveling before the crash but identified it as the primary factor leading to the accident.

It remains unclear whether the high-performance car, with a top speed of 199 mph, was owned outright by Bright or if she was covered by insurance on a vehicle owned by her parents, Teresa and Chris. Several local news outlets, including the Charlotte Observer, described the car as hers.
