Worker Killed Changing Tire On I-95

State police say an automotive service worker was killed while helping a disabled disabled tractor trailer on Interstate 95 overnight.  The accident shortly before 3:00 a.m. closed the northbound lanes of the highway for hours,  and backed up traffic into New York state.

Police say 57-year-old Henry Wagmeister of Weston was changing a tire on the tractor trailer truck parked on the shoulder of the northbound lanes near exit 3 when another tractor trailer drifted onto the shoulder and struck his service truck.  The driver of the disabled vehicle, who was outside his truck at the time, was hurt.

The accident remains under investigation.
