WAYWAYANDA - A final farewell was held Thursday for three members of a Connecticut family who were killed in last week's crash on I-84 in Wawayanda.

Funeral services were held in Bridgeport for Jesenia Valentin, 29, her 9-year-old daughter and 12-year-old niece.

The three were killed when a tractor-trailer hit their car. Authorities say they had run out of gas and were stopped in the right lane.

The truck driver, 52-year-old Gino Ruggerio, of Pennsylvania, says even though the car's hazard lights were on, he didn't realize that the car was at a complete standstill and was not able to stop in time. Ruggerio did not suffer any injuries. He is not expected to be charged with any crimes.
