Guam - The victim from Wednesday's fatal crash at Chamorro Village has been identified as 60-year-old Gil Salvador Cruz Lujan from the village of Anigua. Lujan was driving his Nissan 240sx when he jumped a traffic island, plowed through a canopy setup for the Wednesday Night Market, and then crashed into a concrete structure.

Lujan retired from the U.S. Air Force and returned to Guam in 1991 to help with the family business, Big Ben & Company.  His granddaughter, Karian, describes her grandfather as a family man, generous and loving who always put others first before himself.  His only child, Brian Leon Guerrero, died in 2008 while deployed in Afghanistan. 

Lujan's family has also contacted the pedestrian that was struck during yesterday's incident. Lujan leaves behind his common-law wife, Rosita Leon Guerrero and four grandchildren.

Rosaries are being said at 12noon and 8pm at 162 Santa Cruz Lane in Anigua. An autopsy was conducted today that confirmed Lujan died from a crushed chest.

His death marks the fourth traffic-related fatality in the past two weeks.
