4th victim dies after SUV goes into Florida lake

DEERFIELD BEACH — The Florida Highway Patrol says a fourth person has died, days after a sports utility vehicle landed in a South Florida lake following a crash on Interstate 95.

Troopers say 20-year-old Sandalie Jean-Baptiste died Sunday night.

Three others pulled from the vehicle after Wednesday's crash also died.

It was not immediately clear what caused the crash, which involved three vehicles. The SUV plowed through a fence and plunged into the lake.

The Miami Herald reports the family was on their way home from the mall where they had been shopping for school supplies.

Students from Blanche Ely High School held a candlelight vigil Sunday in honor to honor two of the victims who attended the school.
