The 37-year old man who was killed Friday after being struck by a vehicle while crossing SPID on foot has been identified as Geraldo Chaves.

Police say Chaves tried to cross the freeway near Kostoryz Friday evening. Witnesses saw him make it across the eastbound lanes with no issue, but when he tried to make it across the westbound lanes, he was hit by a truck.

The Nueces County Medical Examiner's Office said that the official cause of death was blunt neck trauma.
