A 38-year-old Alvin man was killed Saturday morning in a collision just outside Cuero, a Department of Public Safety dispatcher said.

Brandon Wayne Arnold was traveling east on State Highway 72 in DeWitt County in a 2006 Chevrolet Silverado pickup.

The weather was clear and the speed limit at the crash site was 70 mph.

Woodrow Robbins Jr., of Vossburg, Miss., was southbound on U.S. Highway 87 in a 2012 Peterbuilt towing a cargo tanker.

Arnold failed to yield the right-of-way to Robbins and was struck by the Peterbuilt at 11:36 a.m.

Arnold died at the scene, according to DPS.
