A Salina man was killed in a head-on collision on Interstate 70 east of Salina early Wednesday morning.

Saline County Sheriff Deputy Ricky Heinrich told KSAL News at the scene that a 2002 silver Jaguar was headed west. As the car was approaching the area of the Niles Road exit, for an unknown reason it crossed the median into oncoming traffic. The Jaguar collided head-on with a 2006 silver Ford Mustang that was headed east.

The driver of the Jaguar has been identified as 29-year-old Aaron Finch, from Riley County. The driver of the Mustang was 46-year-old David Widner of Salina.

Saline County Undersheriff Roger Soldan says that Widner was killed in the crash. Finch was critically injured, and transported by EMS to Salina Regional Health Center.

The crash happened at about 6:30 Wednesday morning, about eight miles east of Salina on Interstate 70.

It’s very poor taste and heartless to post pics that show the body covered. The man was a dear friend of my family, but I am also taking his young son into consideration. He doesn’t need to have that as his last memory of his dad. Nor does the rest of his family.

The body is not in any of the photos. It is just a white sheet. The body was already gone when I arrived and took the photos. I’m sorry for the loss of your friend.
