Back in February TMZ provided the photo of the truck that was damaged while Penn was at the wheel and alone when it was involved in a single-vehicle crash in Hilo.

According to Puna Patrol Cpt. Ken Quiocho, a 911 call was made to report the accident. The report indicated the truck was speeding, lost control, and flipped.

Penn was transported by ambulance to Hilo Medical Center.  Due to procedural changes, he was not issued a breathalyzer at the time and blood was not drawn.
