Officials identified Robert A. Morales, 31, of Natalia, on Friday as the driver of the tanker-trailer in Thursday's fatal crash on Loop 463 near Houston Highway.

Morales was not injured in the wreck, but Kristopher Sydow, 36, of Fulton, died when his Ford truck, which was pulling an empty flatbed trailer, was struck by the tanker-trailer that was carrying 7,700 gallons of crude oil, said Sgt. Eline Moya of the Victoria Police Department.

She said the wreck is still under investigation, but criminal charges are not expected to be presented to the Victoria County District Attorney's Office.
