Several Palm Beach Post readers have posted comments asking why the name of the person driving a red, two-door Chrysler Sebring convertible that was involved in the crash that killed two medical technicians on Thursday has not been published.

The Palm Beach Post has filed a public records request with the Jupiter police department for the police report that would contain the driver’s name and other information.

Police officials say the report is not ready.

The Palm Beach Post will publish the information when it is released by the Jupiter Police Department.

A witness said he was at a bus stop when the red, two-door Chrysler Sebring convertible that had been driving eastbound tried to make a U-turn in the median near Colonial Plaza and pulled out in front of the ambulance, which was headed westbound, away from Jupiter Medical Center.

The driver of the Sebring was critically injured in the crash and taken to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach, according to Jupiter police.
