Booster Shot: St. Thomas Carnival Queen dies in car accident

>> Tuesday, June 23, 2009

The 2009 St. Thomas Carnival Queen, Karence DeCosta, tragically lost her life just hours after her Secondary School graduation on June 8, 2009. It was reported that the 18-year-old lost control of her car and slammed into a pole around 2:15 a.m. on Veteran's Drive. According to reports, the male passenger in the vehicle was not injured.

Karence DeCosta was a new graduate of Charlotte Amelie Highschool. The native of St. Kitts and Nevis moved to the island of St. Thomas in 2006. She was a talented vocalist, referred to as "Song Bird" by those who knew her. She had plans to further her education at North Carolina A&T State University in the Fall. She also had high hopes of representing U.S. Virgin Island at the 2009 Miss World pageant in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Nurse Karen Etc would like to extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family and friends of Miss DeCosta as you mourn the loss of one of the USVI's brightest young stars.

Love and Soca,
