Guam - A man died after being involved in a motorcycle accident near Polaris Point late Sunday afternoon. Guam Police Department Spokesperson John Edwards says the man's identity will be released at a later time, pending notification of family members. Edwards says the man was driving a 1990 Kawasaki sports bike speeding southbound on Marine Corps drive in Piti when he attempted to overtake a vehicle on the inner lane.

Edwards adds that the man then changed lanes when he apparently struck a Chevy Suburban occupying that lane. Preliminary reports show that the man made an
attempt to brake, but was traveling too fast to avoid the collision.  Edwards says the man was transported to Naval Hospital in Agana Heights for multiple injuries, of which head trauma was the most serious. The victim was pronounced dead soon after and his body was transported to the Guam Memorial Hospital in Tamuning.

His death marks the sixth traffic-related fatality of the year 2010.
