CHANDLER, AZ – Chandler police say one of their department’s 9-1-1 dispatchers was killed by a suspected impaired driver on Sunday.
The woman has been identified as 58-year-old Cathy Coppes.
According to police, the crash happened just after 10:30 a.m. on US-89 near milepost 432, approximately 20 miles north of Flagstaff.
Police say Coppes was operating a motorcycle and traveling southbound when a northbound vehicle, a Ford pickup truck, crossed the center line and struck her head on.
She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Coppes started her career with the Chandler Police Department in April 2002. She is survived by her husband, police said.
“She was a valued member of the Communications Staff and was instrumental in training and developing new employees,” police said in a news release.
The Arizona Department of Public Safety said the driver of the vehicle involved in the crash, a 42-year-old man, was taken to the Flagstaff Medical Center for treatment of his injuries.
He was reportedly not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
Troopers say Coppes was not wearing a helmet at the time of the collision.
The investigation of the crash remains ongoing, and impairment has not been ruled out, according to DPS.

FAIRFIELD —A Fairfield police officer wrestled a Hamilton man — who said he was going to UDF to get cigarettes for his girlfriend — to the ground after he fled police during a short car chase.
Kenneth Robert Ramsey, 34, was allegedly speeding just before 3 a.m. May 31 on Wessel Drive heading toward the Fairfield YMCA.
“The vehicle was traveling at an extremely high rate of speed,” according to a police report that estimated the car’s speed at 60 mph.
The vehicle then turned right on Bibury Road without stopping at the stop sign. Then the driver accelerated even faster, according to the report.
“I had my accelerator all the way to the floor and was still not gaining much ground on the Toyota,” according to the police report. “I estimated the vehicle was traveling at a speed of 76 MPH before the vehicle slammed on the brakes and turned east on Broadview.”
The officer had caught up to the vehicle at this time and activated his overhead lights and then shined his spotlight on the driver as he opened the door to exit the vehicle. The officer ordered Ramsey to stop, but he ran into a nearby backyard, according to the police report.
“He attempted to get into the back door of the home, but I grabbed him and told him to get down,” according to the report. “(Ramsey) refused to get on the ground.”
The officer eventually wrestled Ramsey to the ground. After the officer placed handcuffs on Ramsey, he “was yelling about seeing a supervisor and was yelling about the validity of the arrest,” according to the report.
Ramsey was transported to the Fairfield Police Department, where police said he told them he “drank a lot in the day but stopped at about 6 p.m.”
Ramsey allegedly registered a 0.228 percent breath test. The legal limit for drivers in Ohio is .08 percent.
Ramsey was charged with operating a vehicle while impaired, resisting arrest, reckless operation and driving under suspension. He also had an outstanding warrant through the Butler County Sheriff’s Office for child support.
He was then transported to the Butler County Jail.
Ramsey was found guilty in Fairfield Municipal Court on the OVI, resisting arrest and reckless operations charges. He received credit for serving seven days in jail and was placed on two years reporting probation.
CEDAR FALLS — Cedar Falls City Council member Mark Miller has been accused of operating a vehicle while intoxicated.
In the early hours of June 2, Miller was pulled over near the 1100 block of West 18th Street.
A breath test done after Miller was arrested showed a blood alcohol level of .215, according to the police report. He refused a preliminary breath test and stopped midway through a field sobriety test, the report stated.
The officer smelled a strong odor of alcohol and wrote that Miller’s eyes were bloodshot and watery, and Miller admitted to drinking a short time before the stop, the report said.
Miller was arrested and transported to the University of Northern Iowa Police Department.
“I’m fully willing to deal with the consequences of it,” Miller said.
Miller has represented the First Ward in the Cedar Falls City Council since Jan. 1, 2014.
“I hope the council and the rest of the community will support me, and I hope I have the opportunity to stay on the council and continue doing what I’m doing,” he said.
