September 22, 1998

WAYNESBORO, Pa. - A Waynesboro man was killed and two other people injured, one seriously, in a two-vehicle accident Monday in Quincy Township, Pa., according to Franklin County Chief Deputy Coroner Jeffrey Conner.

Wilbur R. Fahrney, 77, of 114 E. Fifth St., was pronounced dead at 1:17 p.m. at the scene of the accident, at the intersection of Anthony Highway and Orphanage Road, Conner said.

The accident occurred two-tenths of a mile south of Nunnery Road, police said.

Conner said an autopsy was scheduled for this morning at Lehigh Valley Hospital in Allentown, Pa., to determine the cause of death.

Conner said Fahrney was a passenger in a car driven by his wife, Betty Fahrney, no age available.

Betty Fahrney was taken to Waynesboro Hospital for treatment before being transferred by ambulance to Washington County Hospital in Hagerstown. She was admitted to the progressive care section, but her condition was not available at press time, a hospital spokeswoman said.


Police said Betty Fahrney was being treated for a broken leg.

The driver of the second vehicle, Khai A. Stull, of Mont Alto, Pa., also was taken to Waynesboro Hospital, then flown by helicopter to Hershey Medical Center in Hershey, Pa., where her condition was listed as critical.

State police alleged that Stull was northbound on Pa. 997 in a Nissan Sentra when her vehicle crossed the center line and hit the Fahrneys' Buick LeSabre head-on.
