SUMNER COUNTY, Kan. (KSNW) — The Sumner County Sheriff’s Office is releasing the names of the two people who died in a vehicle crash Thursday afternoon.
The victims are Sherry Bodkins of Winfield and Donald O’Neil, along with a service dog.
The crash happened at US Highway 160 and Oliver around 3:30 p.m.
When deputies got to the scene, they found a maroon Chevy Tahoe in the east ditch near the southeast corner of the intersection.
A silver Jeep Renegade was in a field about 30 yards southeast of the intersection.
The sheriff’s office says its preliminary investigation shows that the Tahoe, driven by a man from Fort Worth, Texas, was headed south on Oliver. The driver told investigators he had mechanical problems and could not stop at the stop sign.
Bodkins was driving the Renegade eastbound. The two vehicles crashed at the intersection resulting in the fatal injuries to Bodkins, O’Neil, and the service dog.
