Guam - A 60-year-old woman has become the island's latest traffic-related fatality. Guam Memorial Hospital nursing supervisory staff tell KUAM News the woman who was involved in Tuesday's auto-pedestrian accident was pronounced dead at 12:35 early this morning. The woman, who yet to be identified, was in critical condition yesterday at the hospital after a vehicle along San Antonio Street in Barrigada struck her, causing head trauma.

The driver of the vehicle told police that he noticed some school kids walking in his lane of traffic, prompting him to switch lanes to give them space. The driver then reached down to grab his cigarettes, taking his eyes off the road and striking the woman.

No arrests have been made yet and the Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division is investigating the case.

An autopsy has been scheduled for 2pm today.
