GPD looking into crash involving cop car

Posted: Jul 09, 2018 4:29 PM Updated:

A two-car crash involving a GPD official vehicle on July 4th is currently being investigated by the department's Highway Patrol Division.

The Harmon crash resulted in the officer being transported to the Guam Memorial Hospital and four other individuals sustaining minor injuries.

According to GPD Spokesperson Sergeant Paul Tapao, it's still too early to tell which party was at fault. He said, "Our crash investigators haven't concluded any of the findings. There's a tedious task that goes into crash investigation, there's a lot of science that comes into play, so our officers have yet to crunch the numbers and determine who was at fault or who is at violation of the crash.

"If it deems, an administrative investigation will be launched."

While details are unclear, the crash did occur as Tropical Storm Maria was ensuing.

GPD will keep us informed as the investigation continues.
