Blythewood Man Identified in Fatal I-20 Collision
A 59-year-old Blythewood man was identified as the pedestrian that died Wednesday after being struck by three vehicles.
The name of the pedestrian killed after being struck by three vehicles on I-20 Wednesday has been released.
John W. Davis, 59, of Blythewood, was struck by multiple vehicles while walking in the road, Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said in a release Thursday.
Davis died at the scene, Watts said.
Davis' disabled vehicle was found a half-mile away on the eastbound side of I-20, Watts said, possibly explaining why he was in the road.
Davis was walking in the second lane on I-20 west between Farrow Road and U.S. 21 when he was struck by three vehicles, S.C. Highway Patrol troopers said.
The three vehicles were traveling close behind each other on the interstate, troopers said.
The first vehicle, driven by Kimberly Wiggins, 48, struck Davis.
Troopers say Cheryl Livavdais, 63, and Tensha Wells, 35, struck Davis the second and third times, respectively.
An exam performed Thursday showed that Davis died from injuries sustained in the incident, according to the release.
The incident remains under investigation by the S.C. Highway Patrol.
