The victim of a fatal motorcycle crash in Westport over the holiday weekend has been identified as a Rhode Island man.

Police said 51-year-old Michael Joubert of Tiverton, R.I., died at a Fall River hospital following the crash at about 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

Police say Joubert appeared to have lost control of his 2005 Harley Davidson motorcycle at a sharp turn in the road, and ended up in the woods where he was thrown off his bike.

Police say he was wearing a helmet but still suffered "massive trauma.''

The cause remains under investigation. Police found skid marks in the road but it was unclear if speed was a factor.
