A collision on Sunday, September 3rd in south Charlotte left a high school student dead. 15-year-old Ella Lukse, a 10th-grade student at Providence High School, passed away after being involved in a car accident on Raintree Lane.
The school’s principal sent a message out to parents saying school officials were heartbroken by Luske’s death and asked everyone to keep her family and friends in their thoughts.
The crash occurred at approximately 8:57 p.m. on Raintree Lane. A 2006 Jeep was heading south when it collided with a 2019 Volkswagen Jetta. The Jeep then flipped over and the Volkswagen struck a tree. Luske was a passenger in the Volkswagen. Police believe excessive speeding played a factor in the crash. The driver of the Volkswagen is 17-year-old Gorden Ware Fleming. He was not impaired but was found to have consumed alcohol prior to the collision.
Fleming was arrested and charged with driving after consuming under 21 and reckless driving. Additional charges are pending.
