Essex OPP have released the identity of the deceased following Friday's fatal crash on Highway 3 near Upcott Sideroad in Kingsville.

A three wheeled motorcycle was travelling eastbound on Highway 3 when it entered the westbound lane, slamming into a tractor trailer hauling gravel.

That caused a chain reaction involving several more vehicles.

The driver of the motorcycle was pronounced dead at the scene.

He is Brantford resident Michael Dostal, 66.

Another driver was taken to hospital with what appeared to be life-threatening injuries but those have been upgraded to non-life threatening.

The investigation is still ongoing at this time.
