 The Dorchester County Coroner's Office has identified a 35-year-old man who died in a motorcycle accident in Ridgeville Sunday afternoon. 

Coroner Christopher Nisbet says Christopher Howard, of Cross, died at 5:55 p.m. as a result of blunt force trauma to the chest. 

According to Nisbet, Howard was traveling north on Ridgeville Road on a Yamaha motorcycle when he attempted to pass a pick-up truck hauling a car trailer. A car traveling south on Ridgeville Road forced Howard to cut back into his lane, where he struck the trailer of the pick-up truck. 

Highway Patrol is investigating the accident.
