A motorist killed last week in a Fort Worth fiery wreck was attempting to flee from a traffic accident, police said Monday.

The victim has been identified as 47-year-old Jorge Anguiano, according to the Tarrant County medical examiner’s website on Monday. There was no listing for Anguiano’s hometown.

He died from multiple head injuries and his death was an accident, according to a ruling by officials at the medical examiner’s office.

The wreck was reported about 3 a.m. March 19 at Morningside Drive and Main Street.

Just before the fatal wreck, Anguiano had been involved in an accident and fled the scene, police said. The other vehicle involved in the accident began to follow Anguiano’s vehicle.

Anguiano was driving at a high rate of speed when he lost control, clipped a railroad bridge support and then smashed into railroad bridge pillar.

On impact, the vehicle burst into flames, police said.

Anguiano was pronounced dead at the scene.
