SAN ANTONIO - Two people killed in a fiery crash involving a FedEx tractor-trailer this week have been identified.

The Bexar County Medical Examiner's Office identified the victims as Christian Adam Vasquez, 22, and Christopher Talamantez, 25.

Vasquez and Talamantez were in a car heading north on I-35 near Loop 410 on the South Side on Wednesday night when they were rear-ended by FedEx truck. Officers at the scene told us whoever was driving may have missed an exit and hit the brakes, causing the rear-end collision and then a fire.

Witnesses pulled one of the men out of the car, but both died at the scene.
