Couple killed in I-135 crash

A Marion couple died at 1:50 p.m. Saturday when the wife lost control of their southbound car, overcorrected, and skidded it into the path of a northbound semi-trailer truck near the 35th St. exit of I-135, two miles south of Newton.

Both victims — Denice K. Bina, 65, and her husband, Raymond C. Bina, 71 — had been wearing safety restraints, according to Kansas Highway Patrol. They were in a 2008 Lincoln MKZ.

Their bodies were taken to Sedgwick County Forensic Science Center.

The driver of the semi, Evan M. Newman, 25, of Udall, suffered no apparent injury, according to the highway patrol. He was driving a 2019 Freightliner pulling a Wabash trailer.

The victims’ next of kin were notified at 4:30 p.m. by Haysville police.
