DNA testing needed to confirm identity of driver killed in Buellton tanker crash

It will be a few months before we learn the name of the driver killed when his tanker truck overturned near Buellton.

The coroner says DNA testing will need to be done to confirm the driver's identity. He was killed when his truck and trailer overturned and caught fire on Highway 101 near Buellton early Saturday.

The California Highway patrol says the trailer was hauling 8,500 gallons of fuel.
