Guam - Highway Patrol is investigating the island's 10th 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 along 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 autopsy report shows the man died from a crushed chest as it appears he was struck by the car and dragged. The case remains under investigation and police have not released the identity of the deceased.
