One individual died in a single-car crash Tuesday night in Asan.

Pictures of the scene following the crash show the mangled Mitsubishi Outlander that collided with a concrete pole.

The driver of the vehicle has been pronounced deceased, according to GPD spokesman Sgt Paul Tapao who told the media that police are investigating the fatal crash.

Guam Fire Department also responded to the crash on Route 1 near the old Harley Davidson after receiving the report just before 9:30 p.m.

GFD Spokesman Kevin Reilly stated that the driver was an unidentified male, possibly in his 30s, who was found pulseless and breathless at the scene. He was transported to Naval Hospital and later pronounced deceased.

A second occupant, also a male in his 30s, was taken to the Guam Memorial Hospital for serious injuries sustained in the crash. His condition is unknown at this time.

This marks the 6th traffic-related fatality of the year.
