A 34-year-old man is dead after crashing his all-terrain vehicle near Wakefield, Que.

Police in the Outaouais say Daniel Beauregard was riding a three-wheel vehicle through a trail on De La Ligne Road before rolling down a steep ravine at about 6 p.m. Monday.

He was alone on the vehicle and not wearing a helmet at the time, police say. He was also with two other riders but they were ahead of him and did not witness the crash.

The two men attempted to resuscitate Beauregard but they were not successful.

Police say he suffered upper-body injuries but the exact cause of the crash is not yet known.
