Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has identified the individual who died as a result of a motor vehicle collision that occurred Friday shortly before 7 p.m. near mile marker 48 of Interstate 20 Eastbound.
 
According to Fisher, Mr. Fadli S. Bashatov, 35, of Ohio was pronounced dead at
the scene due to injuries sustained. Mr. Bashatov, who was operating a tractor trailer, struck the rear of another tractor trailer in a congested area.
 
The collision caused Mr. Bashatov’s vehicle to leave the right side of the roadway and collide with several trees before coming to a stop. The driver of the other tractor trailer was not injured.
