Guam - The Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division is investigating an auto pedestrian incident where a man who was walking along the road was struck twice by vehicles traveling in the area.  Highway Patrol Division officers say a man driving a Nissan Sentra was traveling northbound on the inner lane when he collided with the unidentified man who was walking in the area. 

The collision forced the pedestrian to be thrown into the oncoming lane, where a woman driving a Nissan Frontier traveling southbound struck him again.  The man was pronounced dead on the scene and is described as being possibly local. 

Police are still waiting for family members to identify him but they believe he is a regular walker in the area. The driver of the Sentra was transported to Naval Hospital in Agana Heights for minor injuries.  Police are conducting interviews and are still looking to determine if speed or alcohol were factors in the incident.
