A 25-year-old man was involved in a tragic motorcycle incident on DuSable Lake Shore Drive late Sunday night. The incident occurred around 11 p.m., as the man was traveling northbound in the 3600 block of the drive, ultimately hitting a guardrail that tragically lead to his death, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

Chicago police have turned the case over to their major accidents unit, who is carefully investigating the circumstances that led to this incident.
