Guam - Family and friends are mourning the loss of 34-year-old Justin Concepcion, who died from injuries he sustained in a motorcycle crash Thursday evening.  Police responded to the motorcycle spill just before 6:30 last night on Ypao Road by Tumon Heights Convenience Store. The man's blue Suzuki Cafe bike crashed into a fence just off the side of the road.

His helmet was just several feet away on the ground. Guam Fire Department medics performed CPR on Concepcion en route to the Guam Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:10 pm. GPD Spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says Highway Patrol was activated, saying, "They are going to look at speed and alcohol as possible factors and anything that may have caused this accident of course they will look into."

Traffic from both directions on Ypao Road was closed off during the police investigation. An autopsy conducted today shows Concepcion died from a crushed skull.
