Guam - A 16-year-old boy is dead following a serious car crash in Talofofo Saturday evening. Guam Police Department spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says units responded to the scene around 8:55pm near the Onward Golf Resort along Route 4a.

He says the operator of a 2003 Nissan Altima heading southbound lost control of his vehicle and struck a concrete pole. The victims have only been identified as being 3 females and 3 males. Balajadia says all of the victims are minors and had to be taken to the Guam memorial hospital. Medics had to provide CPR for the lone teen that was taken to Naval hospital in critical condition.

The doctor at the hospital later pronounced the teen dead. The condition of the 5 others at GMH are currently unknown at this time, however police say at least 4 of the victims appeared to have serious injuries.

Guam Highway Patrol investigators are currently investigating whether speed and/or alcohol are factors in the crash.
