Guam - The death toll for the island's traffic fatalities has jumped to 15 following a serious car accident that occurred in Dededo late Saturday evening. Officers from the Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division responded to a report of a serious two-car collision near Wusstig Road in Yigo.  

GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says a 1996 Toyota Corolla heading northbound along Marine Corps Drive was struck by a Toyota Tercel while attempting to make a left turn into Wusstig Road. Balajadia says there was only one occupant in the Corolla, with two occupants in the Tercel. All three victims were transported to the Guam Memorial Hospital, where just a couple of hours after the accident, a GMH nursing supervisor reported that all three male victims had died.

An autopsy is expected to be conducted on Monday.

Police continue to investigate whether speed and/or alcohol are factors in the crash.
