IA Couple Killed Traveling to Outback Bowl

WILTON, IA (CBS2/FOX28/AP) - An Iowa couple, on their way to the Outback Bowl, died in a car crash in south-central Georgia Sunday.

64-year-old Kenneth Eugene Behrens was driving on Interstate 75 when another vehicle traveling at a high rate of speed hit him from behind. Both vehicles left the road and hit a guardrail.

Behrens was thrown from the driver's seat into the passenger seat as his vehicle rolled.

He and one of his passengers, 65-year-old Margaret Elaine Behrens died in the crash. A 13-year-old boy riding with the couple wasn't injured.

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

The driver of the other vehicle, 19-year-old Benjamin Blake from Ohio, was not injured.

Charges are pending.

A family friend, Arnie Kempf, of Durant, says the Behrens were longtime University of Iowa fans and were looking forward to attending the Hawkeyes' game with Louisiana State University in Tampa.
