West Greenwich, R.I. — Officials in Rhode Island this evening identified the Waterford man who died in a motorcycle crash Sunday during a charity run as 54-year-old Kenneth Bird.

The single-vehicle crash occurred at 10:30 a.m. in the Big River Management area in West Greenwich, said Department of Environmental Management spokeswoman Gail Mastrati.

Attempts to revive him at the scene failed. Mastrati says the charity event was being held by the Rhody Rovers, a recreational club for off-road riders.
