Cops: 77-year-old dies after accidentally driving into Lake Lanier

The body of a 77-year-old Cumming woman was found inside a car pulled from Lake Lanier on Saturday, officials said.

Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Cpl. Robin Regan said deputies and firefighters responded to the Tidwell Park and found a silver Toyota Camry “completely underwater” at the end of a boat ramp. Officials retrieved the car and found 77-year-old Reva Jennings inside.

“Detectives believe Jennings accidentally drove into the lake,” Regan said in an emailed statement. “The case is still under investigation. Foul play is not suspected at this time.”
