PENDLETON -- A motorcycle rider from Chilliwack, British Columbia, died in an accident Sunday afternoon near Pendleton.

Oregon State Police say 60-year-old William Clifford Hallsworth was riding in a group of six cycles northbound on Highway 37 near milepost  28. For an unknown reason, his 2000 Moto Guzzi drifted onto the lip of the pavement.

He tried to come back to the paved surface but lost control, police said. He was thrown from the bike and landed in a wheat field.

Hallsworth was pronounced dead at a hospital in Pendleton.
