CROSBY, N.D. (AP) - Bond has been set at $15,000 for a Florida man facing three felony manslaughter charges in a triple-fatal crash in North Dakota’s oil patch.

Forty-nine-year-old William Koehler, of Chiefland, Florida, could face up to 30 years in prison if convicted in the Aug. 23 crash in a Divide County construction zone that killed two children and their father.

Koehler is accused of speeding and using his cellphone moments before rear-ending a car that was stopped for a flagger.

Koehler could enter pleas at an Oct. 27 hearing. His attorney has not responded to a request for comment from The Associated Press.
