Charlotte, N.C. – (Thursday, December 1, 2022) – Detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department's Major Crash Investigation Unit are investigating a fatal vehicle crash in the Providence Division.
On Thursday, December 1, 2022, at approximately 12:34 a.m., Providence Division officers responded to a two vehicle crash in the 1900 block of E. Independence Boulevard. Upon arrival, officers located a 2018 Lexus IS300 with extensive damage and a 2019 Honda HR-V Sport with heavy right rear damage.

The preliminary investigation indicates that the Lexus was traveling east on E. Independence Boulevard at a high rate of speed, when it struck the rear of the Honda causing both vehicles to lose control. The impact of the crash caused the Lexus to flip and eject the driver, Terryn Desravines, and passenger, Brooke Peters, from the vehicle. Both subjects were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. The families of Terryn Desravines (DOB: 11/10/1999) and Brooke Peters (DOB: 08/30/2001) have been notified of their deaths.
The driver of the Honda, Brian Aurillo (DOB: 08/23/1964), was screened for impairment and found not to be impaired at the time of the crash.
Impairment and speed are believed to be factors in this crash.
