Motorcyclist killed in collision with tractor trailer truck on Lake Murray Dam Monday evening

Irmo, SC (Paul Kirby) - Lexington County Coroner Margaret Fisher has identified the motorcycle rider who died after colliding with a tractor trailer truck Monday night on the Lake Murray Dam. The accident stopped all traffic across the dam, and motorists reported the traffic was backed up for some distance after the collision occurred shortly before 9:00 p.m.

According to the coroner, John William Bafford III, 32, of Gilbert was pronounced dead at the scene due to injuries he sustained in the collision. Bafford was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash. He was traveling west, back toward Lexington and Gilbert, when he crossed the center line and collided head-on with the truck. The driver of the 18-wheeler was transported to an area hospital with what were believed to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The South Carolina Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate the collision.
