william kuebler killed in crash on okeechobee boulevard

An unfortunate event on the morning of February 26 claimed the life of 59-year-old William Kuebler III.

Kuebler was behind the wheel of an Explorer Sport Trac pickup truck, which crashed into a Mazda CX-5 at the intersection of Sansburys Way and Okeechobee Boulevard. 

After the collision, the Explorer overturned and slammed into a traffic light and handrail on the sidewalk, according to West Palm Beach Police. Kuebler was trapped inside and pronounced dead at the scene.

The Mazda was driven by a 73-year-old woman and had three passengers. The woman and a 19-year-old man in the front seat were transported to St. Mary’s Medical Center with what are being described as minor injuries.

While the investigation continues, details are starting to help crystalize the moments before the crash. Authorities surmise that the Explorer may have run a red light before the accident and that alcohol may have been a factor.

The eastbound lanes of Okeechobee Boulevard were shut down for nearly five hours as responders processed the scene.
