Daughter of Councilwoman Involved in Crash

On Monday night, April 20, the daughter of Councilwoman Jeni Coke of Lake Havasu City was involved in an accident.

According to authorities, the accident occurred at around 8.30 at night in the 3300 block of London Bridge Road. Taylor Coke, aged 17 was driving in her vehicle when 53 year old William Penn of Desert Hills crossed the center line and hit her car head on.

Penn then fled the scene but officers gave chase and caught him in an area of desert nearby, when he was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, aggravated assault, criminal damage and leaving the scene of an injury accident. He was not seriously injured.

However, Taylor Coke was injured and was flown by air ambulance to Las Vegas to be treated for a broken hip and two broken legs.

This is the second time in six weeks that a child of a council member has been hurt in a car accident, the last one being in early March when the 6 year old daughter of Councilwoman Michele Lin was injured in a car crash. She has since recovered.
