Police identify the victim as Eric Wunderlich, 20, of Ontario.
Investigators said he died after he lost control of his bike while popping a wheelie just before 8 p.m. The motorcycle then hit a curb, flew into the air, and crashed into a pole.
Witnesses told police that they saw Wunderlich, and another rider, pulling wheelies at a high rate of speed on nearby Lake Avenue just before the crash. The other motorist was not involved in the crash, but called 911.
