MOODY, Texas (AP)  One Central Texas man has been killed and two others hurt when a tank holding agriculture chemicals exploded in a machine shop at a farm.

The Coryell County Sheriff’s Office on Monday identified the man who died in the accident as 55-year-old Charl Wynard Swart of McGregor.

Two other injured men, also from McGregor, were transported to hospitals following Sunday night’s accident at a farm near Moody. Their names and further details on their injuries were not immediately available.

Chief Deputy Joe Blakley says authorities are trying to determine what caused the explosion. Blakely says there was no fire but at least one victim suffered burns.

Shrapnel from the blast damaged the metal farm building.
