NEWBERRY — Alex William Kibler, 20, of Pomaria was killed in a single-vehicle wreck early Sunday morning on Mt. Bethel Garmany Road.

Bill Rhyne with the S.C. Highway Patrol said the accident happened around 3:20 a.m. Sunday. Kibler was pronounced dead at the scene, Rhyne said.

According to Rhyne, Kibler was heading north on Mt. Bethel Garmany Road, approximately 3 miles outside the city, when his 2014 Chevy Silverado pick-up truck ran off the left side of the road, struck some trees and then overturned. Kibler was alone in the vehicle and was wearing a seat belt, Rhyne said.

“This is truly a tragic loss to the Newberry County community,” Coroner Craig Newton said in a statement. “My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of this fine young man.”

An autopsy was scheduled for Monday. The accident remains under investigation.
