LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- A Las Vegas man has become the 12th traffic accident victim in Metro's jurisdiction after he lost control of his motorcycle and hit guy wires supporting a power pole late Saturday night.

Chad Anderson, 41, apparently lost control of his 2000 Harley Davidson while traveling eastbound on East Bonanza Road near 7th Street.

Metro said the road makes a slight bend at that point and Anderson failed to maintain his travel lane and ran off the right side of the road at the 7th Street intersection. The motorcycle continued through a vacant lot and struck a set of guy wires anchoring a power pole. The rider fell to the ground near the guy wires and the Harley continued eastbound and came to rest on its side in the middle of 9th Street south of Bonanza Road.

Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene.

The accident remains under investigation by Metro's accident investigation section.

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)
