Sheriff’s deputies have identified the two people who were killed after a tree fell on top of their moving car on Wednesday.

We’re told 34-year-old Jeongseok Kong and his wife, 28-year-old Sunmi Jin, both of Baltimore, Maryland, were southbound on County Road 6 in Ontario County when a large branch from a tree fell across the road and landed on their car. Kong and Jin were pronounced dead on the scene.

Investigators say notification of family members in South Korea was made with help from the South Korean Embassy Consulate in New York City.
