The man who lost his life when a commercial truck overturned in Mangilao Thursday afternoon has been identified as Glen Cruz.
The 21-year-old was the passenger of a Detry Plumbing truck that flipped over along Marbo Cave road in Mangilao.
Cruz, who was ejected from his seat, was identified by a co-worker and friend.
PNC tried to get a statement from Detry management but was unable to do so as of newstime.
Police spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao, in a release, stated that the operator lost control of the truck which ran off the roadway, causing the vehicle to overturn. He said Cruz was pinned under the truck.
Ejected from the vehicle, Cruz was found lifeless and pulseless when emergency personnel arrived on the scene. The extent of his injuries prevented EMTs from performing lifesaving measures, said GFD Spokesman Kevin Reily.
Cruz was taken to GMH where he was pronounced dead by attending physicians.
The driver of the vehicle was trapped inside the cab and required the use of the jaws of life and a nearby excavator to remove him from the cab. He was taken to Guam Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
GPD says the case is ongoing as investigators have yet to determine if speed, alcohol, or drugs were factors in the crash.
