LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- A 26-year-old North Las Vegas man has been identified as the victim of a single motorcycle accident shortly before noon Saturday on East Desert Inn Road.

Timothy Wayne Sharp Jr. died at Sunrise Hospital a few hours after he lost control of his 2000 Kawasaki Ninja sport motorcycle as he was traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on Desert Inn near Swenson Street.

The Clark County coroner's office said today that Sharp died of multiple injuries from the accident.

Metro's fatal detail reported the motorcycle went off the right side of the roadway and stuck a light pole on the south sidewalk of Desert Inn road just west of Swenson Street.

Sharp was transported to Sunrise Trauma with critical injuries and later was pronounced dead.

The fatality was the 72nd in Metro's jurisdiction this year.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
