Guam - A man involved in a crash this morning on Mayot Lizama Road in Yigo, just 500 feet from the gate to Andersen Air Force Base, died from injuries and police are seeking the public's help in coming forward with any information. An 18-year-old man was non-responsive as medics rushed him to the Guam Memorial Hospital after an auto-pedestrian crash.

The driver of the vehicle that hit the man reportedly fled the scene.

He was pronounced dead at 4:30 this morning. His identity is not being released at this time as case remains under investigation. If you have information about this crash and the car that fled, please contact the Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol Division at 475-8463/4 or GPD at 472-8911.

The man's death marks the twelfth traffic-related fatality of the 2011, following last week's motorcycle crash that resulted in the death of 39-year-old Joey Fernandez. Police continue to investigate the cause of that incident.
