Guam - Family members confirm the victim from this morning's traffic fatality as Ray Rojas. Rojas was the driver of the white Dodge Nitro that crashed into a concrete utility pole early Thursday morning in front of the Santa Teresita Catholic Church in Mangilao. Rojas is a popular baseball player.

The 49-year-old played for the PacSports Giants in the Guam Master's League.  He was employed at the Guam Community College.  GCC's Marketing Director Jayne Flores comments, "We are all shocked and saddened at the news of his death, and our thoughts and prayers are with Lina and their family at this time."  Rojas was also an avid golfer. Last September he and his wife Lina won the GCC Foundation Par Excellence Golf Tournament. 

His death marked the third traffic fatality this week and the 5th since the year began.  The Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash.
