Family prays, mourns as dive team searches for woman's body in Broward County lake

3 die when car crashes into lake


BROWARD COUNTY, Fla. – Lucienne Pierre's family watched the Broward Sheriff’s Office dive team Tuesday search for the body of a 26-year-old woman in a Broward County lake.

As they searched, Pierre's relatives called out her name and walked around the lake. 

Pierre is the only victim whose body has yet to be recovered after a single-car crash Monday. 

The driver of the red Jaguar, Keiontae Meyers, 20, was driving home from a nightclub when his vehicle veered off the road at about 5 a.m. and went into a lake at Northwest 29th Avenue and Northwest 14th Street. 

His three passengers, including Pierre and her stepsister, Jasmine Davis, 23, died. 

Meyers is the sole survivor. 

"This is a sad time for our family," Marcia Derby-Davis said. "We never expected something like this to happen during this festive holiday season."

The mother of the siblings prayed Tuesday that Pierre would be found.

"It's very hard not to have closure when there's no body," Derby-Davis said.

Pierre had an 8-year-old daughter and was expected to start nursing school next month. 

The family of the third victim of the crash, Jarvis Mosley, 21, is also in mourning.

"He didn't have to drive like that," Mosley's aunt, Natasha Sutton, said. "These young kids now, they be doing off-the-wall, crazy stuff, and it don't make no sense."

By Tuesday night, family and friends of the victims gathered by the lake, where they sang gospel songs and held signs with Bible verses written on them.

"He was like the happy-go-lucky person," Mosley's cousin, Anquinette Gelsey, said.

Gelsey said Mosley and Meyers were best friends and were "always together."
