Kansas man killed in accident near Braman


A fatality collision occurred at 1:34 p.m. Sunday afternoon along Interstate 35 northbound at mile marker 225, approximately 2 miles south of Braman in Kay County.

A snow storm was occurring at the time as Chevin Webb, 24, of Manhattan, Ks, who. was driving a 2013 Honda Accord northbound on I-35, lost control of his vehicle. Webb’s vehicle then departed the roadway to the left striking the bridge railing. The vehicle continued to spin likely due to the icy conditions before coming to a rest in the roadway. Malak Singh, 27, of Antelope, Ca. was unable to stop the 2019 Freightliner that he was driving and struck Webb’s vehicle.

Webb was extricated by Blackwell Fire Department utilizing a crowbar. However, Webb was pronounced dead due to head and trunk internal injuries. Singh was not injured.

Both Webb and Singh were using seatbelts. The airbags did deploy for Webb’s vehicle.

Oklahoma Highway patrol listed the cause of the collision as driving too fast considering the snowy weather and slickness of I-35.

When the accident occurred, traffic was diverted off of I-35 at the State Highway 11 exit for Blackwell (mile marker 222) between 1:34 p.m. and 4:23 p.m. I-35 was closed for approximately 2 hours and 9 minutes.
