The 16-year-old daughter of a millionaire Lowe’s exec has tragically died in a horrific crash. 

Stella Grace Bright was the daughter of Chris Bright, who is the Vice President of Market Delivery & Final Mile at Lowe’s, the second-largest home improvement retailer in America.

Her mother, Teresa, has a gift-making business and she regularly posts photos of Bright – and her twin sister Olivia – and their stunning home online.

Devastatingly, it has been revealed that the teenager ploughed her Porsche supercar into a tree, resulting in her death, as per MailOnline.

Bright was driving her 2014 Porsche 911 near Lake Norman, North Carolina at around 3:20am on September 9 when she reportedly flew off the road and ended up in a rock landscaping wall. 

The tragic incident killed the teen and left two others injured.

Allegedly, one of two passengers was in the back of the Porsche – despite the vehicle being a two-seater which is not supposed to hold rear-seat passengers. They were reportedly not wearing a seatbelt.

It is believed Bright and the other passenger was wearing a seatbelt.

Neither of the injured victims’ identities have been disclosed, and their conditions have not been shared.

North Carolina Highway Patrol Trooper Christopher Casey declined to comment on what speed the teen was driving at, however, he determined that high velocity was a contributing factor to the tragedy.

It is unclear whether the supercar – which can apparently reach speeds of 199mph – was owned by the teen outright or whether she was insured on a car belonging to her parents.

Local news outlets, including the Charlotte Observer, have described the vehicle as belonging to Bright.

Bright’s grief-stricken sister has taken to social media and paid tribute, penning (via MailOnline): “I don’t know how I’m going to live another day without you. You meant the world to me and still do. You didn’t deserve to go this soon you really didn’t.

“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.”

“I can’t even begin to describe with words how grateful I am to have met you and to be a part of your life. You are so amazing and caring ad kind and talented and you had such a beautiful soul.

“You always know how to put a smile on anyone’s face… You were the bestest sister I never got to have and I miss you so much. I’m so sorry I never got to say goodbye.”
