A motorcyclist died Saturday night after he crashed into a set of wires anchoring a power pole in a vacant lot in downtown Las Vegas.
The 41-year-old Las Vegas man was traveling east on Bonanza Road near Seventh Street about 11:40 p.m. when he failed to account for a bend in the road, Metro Police said. The man drove off the road and into an undeveloped lot, where he struck the wires.
The crash knocked the man off the motorcycle, police said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
