Motorcycle crash claims woman's life
by Nick Delgado
Guam - A woman in her early 40's is dead this evening after the motorcycle she was driving collided with another vehicle in Agat Monday afternoon. GPD Highway Patrol Division officer Jed Santo Tomas
says the driver of a Toyota Matrix pulled out from an apartment complex along route 2 heading northbound when his vehicle went into the oncoming lane and collided with the Harley Davidson motorcycle.
Police confirm the woman was dragged nearly 20 feet from the point of impact and was trapped under the vehicle. Authorities say she had to be extracted from underneath. Medics performed CPR en route to the Naval Hospital, but according to Navy spokesperson Lt. William Knight the woman was pronounced dead shortly after she arrived. Her identity has not yet been released pending notification of her next of kin.
Meantime, the driver of the Matrix was taken to the Guam Memorial Hospital for treatment. Police are also waiting for test results to determine if he was in fact under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash. No arrests have been made at this time.
GPD Highway Patrol officers closed off both north and south bound lanes along route 2 near the 76 gas station as they conducted their investigation.
