Chatham-Kent police have identified a man who died while riding a motorcycle near Wallaceburg Sunday afternoon as 21-year-old Kyle Lee James of Grande Pointe.

He was traveling with three family members who were also on bikes, when they came across a 13-metre wide water-filled ditch just after 3 p.m ET.

James' bike hit the bank of the ditch, causing him and his machine to flip.

He was taken to hospital and later pronounced dead.

The Chatham-Kent Police Service traffic unit continues to investigate the incident.
