PFLUGERVILLE, Texas (KXAN) - Two siblings, who had just moved to the Atlanta-area earlier this month from Pflugerville, were struck and killed by a driver while they were changing a flat tire on I-75 on Monday.
According to Morrow police, the siblings were on the side of the freeway trying to change a tire when a driver in a Toyota SUV was entering the freeway and struck the duo.
The driver, Kenneth Ebel, 61, of Fayetteville, Georgia did stop at the scene.
Savannah Guio, 30, died at the scene. Her brother, Steven Mack, 23, was transported to a nearby hospital but died a short time later.
Family members of the victims, both of whom are in their 20s, said the brother and sister were in the processing of moving into their new apartment.
After interviewing Ebel and analyzing crash data, authorities in Georgia charged Ebel with two counts of vehicular homicide.
Guio's and Mack's mother is trying to raise funds to transport their bodies back to Pflugerville and for the funeral.
