The Clark County Coroner’s office has identified the Lake Havasu City woman who was fatally injured when the boat she was operating struck a water taxi tied to the dock of a Laughlin Casino along the Colorado River. The office, however, has not yet determined the official cause of the death of 53-year-old Brenda Joy Devine-Pfeffer.
Nevada Department of Wildlife public information officer Douglas Nielsen said the collision occurred at about 4:00 p.m. Monday. He said no one else was involved or injured in the accident that remains under investigation.
“It is unknown whether alcohol was a factor, but officers are looking into all aspects of the case,” Nielsen said. “Toxicology tests are expected back in a couple of weeks.”
