RICHMOND, R.I. (AP) - A Westerly man has died after he crashed his dirt bike while riding on a trail in Richmond.

Richmond Police tell WPRI-TV (https://bit.ly/1kq7I4E ) that 21-year-old Cory Ellis died Sunday afternoon.

They say their investigation showed he was trailing behind two friends on Old Mountain Trail during their ride. He was going downhill on a winding part of the trail when his Yamaha bike left the trail and crashed into a ditch.

Police say Ellis was wearing a helmet.

The Hope Valley Ambulance Corps responded, and he was taken to Kent Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
