The motorist killed Tuesday night in a one-vehicle wreck on Interstate 30 has been identified as 28-year-old Saul Morales, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s website.

Morales was pronounced dead at 11:16 p.m. at the scene off I-30 near Bridgewood Drive in east Fort Worth. His home address was not listed.

A female passenger who has not been identified was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital. Her condition was not available Thursday.
