GREENWICH - Loved ones are mourning the loss of a man killed Friday morning in an accident along I-95 in Greenwich.

Police say Henry Wagmeister was struck and killed on the northbound side near exit 3 shortly before 3 a.m. They say the 57-year-old, who owned Truck Tire Sales & Service in Norwalk, was helping a stalled truck driver change a tire when another truck veered into the breakdown lane. That truck pushed Wagmeister's service vehicle, which plowed into him.

The drivers of both trucks involved in the crash were hospitalized with minor injuries.

Family members have yet to organize funeral arrangements.
