The man who died in an auto-pedestrian wreck Friday has been identified.

Audrey Moren, 59, died of injuries sustained in the wreck near the intersection of Laurent and Elizabeth streets.

Doc Bartlett, Salvation Army program director, confirmed Moren was homeless.

Calls to Senior Patrol Officer Herschel Buck for confirmation were not immediately returned Tuesday.

No survivors were listed in the obituary for Moren, but a graveside service will be held, said Dolores Artero, manager of Artero Memorial Chapels in Victoria.

"It's very sad," she said. "People have called about him. Obviously he had a lot of acquaintances."
