Guam - The Guam Police Department's Highway Patrol division is investigating an auto pedestrian incident that occurred just before 8 o'clock Thursday evening. According to Police Spokesperson Lt. Art Paulino the incident occurred along Route 16 near Mendioka Street (the road entering into St. Paul's School). Paulino adds the driver of a 2-door 1994 blue Honda Civic coupe was driving southbound (uphill) when he collided with a male pedestrian who appeared to be in the center lane.

The victim was transported to the Guam Memorial Hospital. According to Guam Fire Department Spokesperson Lt. Ed Artero he was conscious and alert. Meanwhile, Paulino says there was heavy damage to the front windshield and slight damage to the hood area of the Honda Civic. No arrests have been made as the case remains under investigation. However, Paulino says the driver of the vehicle is an off duty police officer. He identified the officer as PO3 Eugene Charfauros assigned to Hagatna Precinct Command. Paulino says there were no signs that Charfauros had been drinking alcohol. He added it's also not clear whether the pedestrian was drinking alcohol. Highway Patrol is also looking into whether speed was a factor in the incident. Additionally, the police spokesperson stresses that it's standard procedure when a police officer is involved to send the findings of the highway investigation to Internal Affairs. The Chief of Police will announce later if there was any violation.
