Guam - The Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division continues to investigate the cause of yesterday's fatal car crash that resulted in the death of 39-year-old Department of Corrections officer Joey Q. Fernandez. An autopsy was conducted today confirming he died from a facial and skull fracture. 

Police say Fernandez was riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle south on Route 4 when he collided with a Toyota 4Runner that was making a left turn from McDonald's. The SUV was driven by 57-year-old Frances Chargualaf of Inarajan. Police say they continue to conduct interviews as part of the ongoing investigation. 

Rosaries meanwhile are being said nightly at 7:30 in the evening at 143 Fernandez Street in Yona.  His death marks the 11th traffic related fatality this year to date.
