Police investigate early morning traffic fatality

by Mindy Aguon

Guam - A 29-year-old man died from injuries he sustained in an early morning crash near the Fisheye Marine Park.  Police say the two car collision was initially classified as a crash but Highway Patrol officers were activated when one of the occupants of the vehicles died at the Guam Memorial Hospital.  Guam Fire Department Spokesperson Lieutenant Ed Artero says just before 1:00 am Sunday, six people were transported to GMH for injuries.  Five were occupants in one car and the other was the driver of the second vehicle.  


GPD Spokesperson Officer AJ Balajadia says a 19 year old female was driving a dark blue colored Toyota Scion on the northbound inner lane, when the male operator of a silver colored Toyota Corolla who was also traveling northbound outer lane, passed the Scion and executed a U-turn, causing the two cars to collide.  One of the passengers of the Corolla was pronounced dead
after 4:00 Sunday morning.  

The driver of the Scion and other occupants of the Corolla are being treated at GMH but their conditions are unknown as Nursing Supervisor Cely Magrobong says the hospital is unable to provide the condition of the patients for the protection of the patients' privacy and any information would need to be released by police.  No other details were available.  

The death marks the 11th traffic-related fatality this year to date.
