The Ohio State Highway Patrol reported the Licking County Coroner has identified the man killed earlier this month in a Fairfield County crash.
Dr. C. Jeff Lee said the man killed in the accident is 21-year-old Zachary T. Farley of Glenford, Ohio.
The patrol said on April 14, around 6:30pm, 35-year-old Jason Stoll, of Newark, was traveling north on Custers Point Road in a 2009 Chevrolet Silverado.
Stoll, who was hauling a trailer, pulled off the side of the road and came to stop partially blocking the northbound lane.
That’s when Farley’s vehicle, traveling north at a high rate of speed approached the stopped vehicle, lost control and crashed, catching the vehicle on fire.
The patrol believes alcohol to be a factor in the crash that remains under investigation.
