    TELEGRAM & GAZETTE STAFF


    WEBSTER —  An elderly Texas couple who had stopped to change a tire on their camper trailer were killed early yesterday morning along Interstate 395 when a passing sedan veered into the breakdown lane and struck them, state police said.

    Robert G. Farner, 81, and Chloe K. Farner, 77, of Cottonwood Shores, Texas, were pronounced dead at the scene, state police said.

    A 21-year-old Lowell man was driving a Nissan Altima in the northbound lanes of I-395, near the exit for Route 193, about 6:40 a.m. when his car plowed into the couple’s truck and camper trailer as they were working on the tire, state police said.

    Geoffrey K. Wahome was seriously injured in the impact. His car flipped after the crash and came to rest in the breakdown lane on the northbound side of the highway, police said.

    It wasn’t clear yesterday evening if alcohol or speed were a factor in the crash.

    Mr. Wahome was taken by ambulance to UMass Memorial Medical Center for treatment, police said. He was listed in serious condition yesterday evening.

    The northbound lanes of the highway were closed for about an hour until one lane was reopened to traffic about 8:15 a.m., police said. The crash remains under investigation
