Guam - The Guam Highway Patrol Division is investigating the island's latest traffic-related fatality. A 40-year-old man operating a black moped died from injuries he sustained from being struck by a car. Guam Police Department spokesperson Officer A.J. Balajadia says the moped operator and a female passenger were heading north on Marine Corps Drive in Yigo when a 2004 Toyota Camry heading south attempted to make a left turn onto Jose Galo Street and collided with the moped.
The moped operator was taken to the Guam Memorial Hospital and was pronounced dead just before midnight.
The case remains under investigation and police have not released the identity of the deceased.
