In the early morning on June 16, 2012 Anthony J. Yokel heading eastbound on SR 168 and crossed the center line into the path of Marvin Christian and Lauren R. Hale. Marvin Christian noticed Mr. Yokel’s vehicle heading toward him in his lane and swerved out of the way being side swiped by the gold 2002 DaeWoo. Lauren, who was driving behind Mr. Christian was then hit head on by Mr. Yokel and was later pronounced dead at the scene. Mr. Yokel was then flown to Deaconess Hospital with serious injuries sustained.
Lauren, born Dec. 27, 1991 in Evansville to Dave Hale and Stacey Kohlhouse, a 2010 graduate of Gibson Southern High School, was soon to graduate from the Vincennes Beauty College, and worked at Ponderosa Steakhouse in Vincennes, Indiana. She was a member of First Baptist Church in Princeton and a sports enthusiast, especially softball and volleyball.
Anthony J Yokel has still not been charged for the death of Lauren in this negligent heinous crime though reports that alcohol or drugs are suspected to have been a factor to the crash as State Police Sgt. Chad Dick reported.
Please sign this petition and show your support for the family of Lauren R. Hale who was taken at the young age of 20. Please sign this petition if you stand for justice and wish to see justice done to Anthony J. Yokel. We cannot let a crime of this stature go unpunished.
