LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- A motorcyclist lost control and crashed near East Desert Inn & Joe W. Brown drive shortly before noon today. He later died as a result of his injuries.

Metro said the accident happened just a few minutes before noon.

"It appears he just lost control somehow," said Metro Lt. Nichole Splinter said during the investigation.

Metro's fatal detail reported that the man lost control of his 2000 Kawasaki Ninja after traveling at a high rate of speed eastbound on Desert Inn near the intersection with Joe W. Brown/Swenson streets.

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

The fatality was the 72nd in Metro's jurisdiction this year. The accident remains under investigation, Metro said.
