A 23-year-old Manassas man died Sunday after he lost control of his motorcycle on Hornbaker Road, struck a guide wire attached to an electric pole, according to Prince William County Police.

Officers were dispatched to the area of Hornbaker and Industrial roads in Manassas at about 1:56 p.m. on Sunday, May 16, to investigate after a motorcyclist ran off the road, according to Officer Adam Beard, spokesman for the Prince William County Police Department.

The preliminary investigation revealed that the operator of a 2007 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R was traveling south on Hornbaker Road near Industrial Road when he lost control, ran off the right side of the roadway and struck a guide wire attached to an electric pole, causing him to be thrown from the vehicle, Beard said in a news release.

The operator was wearing a helmet at the time of the collision and was transported to an area hospital, where he died as a result of his injuries sustained during the crash. Speed is a factor in the crash, the release said.

The driver of the 2007 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-10R was identified as Joshua Lee Jackson, 23, of Manassas. The investigation continues, the release said.
