Body of Third Victim in Fort Lauderdale Canal Crash Found

Forty-eight hours after a car crashed into a lake near Fort Lauderdale, police found a floating body early Wednesday morning found to be final victim in the tragic crash.

Lucienne Pierre and two others were killed early Monday morning when the red Jaguar they were riding in plowed through a fence and plunged into the water. Police found the body of Pierre early Wednesday morning in the waters near NW 29th Avenue and 14th Street.

"Words can't express in my heart the longing, the void," said her grandmother Norma Thompson. "She was full of life and bubbly."

Tuesday night, loved ones held a candle-lit vigil for Pierre, her sister Jasmine Davis and Jarvis Mosley. Pierre and Davis are both mothers, according to family.

Mosley’s cousin, Anquinette Gelsey, stopped by the vigil. She said Mosley has a two-year old daughter. "She's asking for daddy but we can't tell her nothing yet," said Gelsey.

"We can have closure knowing that she's not in the bottom of the murky [lake],” said Thompson.

The driver, Keiontae Myers, escaped the sinking car and was pulled to safety by neighbors using a garden hose.

The Broward Sheriff's Office said the crash is still under investigation and officials haven't said yet if alcohol was a factor, however did say Myers was speeding at the time of the crash.
