Iowa fans headed for Outback Bowl die in crash – Omaha World

WILTON, Iowa (AP) — An Iowa couple traveling to the Outback Bowl in Florida has died in a crash in Georgia.

Kenneth Behrens, 64, and his wife, Margaret Behrens, 65, died in the Sunday evening crash on Interstate 75 in Georgia. A 13-year-old boy riding with the couple wasn’t injured.

The Behrenses were from Wilton.

The Georgia State Patrol says the crash happened in south-central Georgia when traffic slowed. A car hit the couple’s sport utility vehicle, causing it to overturn.

Relatives of the Behrenses were in a minivan ahead of the SUV.

A family friend, Arnie Kempf, of Durant, said the Behrenses were longtime University of Iowa fans and were looking forward to attending the Hawkeyes’ game with LSU in Tampa.

The crash remains under investigation.
