2 Hit, Killed while Changing Flat Tire in Webster

An elderly couple was killed early Saturday morning when a car crashed into them while they were changing a flat tire along Route 395 in Webster.

State police say the couple pulled their truck, which was towing a camper, off onto the breakdown lane to change a tire. While working on the flat tire, the two were hit around 6:40 a.m. by a Nissan Altima being driven by 21-year-old Geoffrey Wahome.

After hitting the truck, 81-year-old Robert Farner and 77-year-old Chloe Farner, the Nissan rolled over. Wahome suffered serious injuries.

The Farners, who were from Cottonwood Shores, Texas, were killed at the scene.

Route 395 North was shut down for about one hour following the wreck.

The crash is under investigation.
