Fatal crash in Upper Tumon on Feb. 20 ruled accidental

911

The fatal two-car crash in Upper Tumon on Feb. 20 has been ruled an accident, according to Guam police spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao.

The autopsy on the victim has been completed, said Sgt. Tapao, and it found that 22-year-old Stevenso Pius died as a result of a skull fracture.

Pius was the occupant of the Toyota Prius which was struck by a Mitsubishi Outlander that was making a left turn onto Route 1.

The jaws-of-life had to be used to extract Pius from the wreckage. Three other occupants in the Toyota suffered relatively minor injuries.

Questions have been raised about whether the driver of the Outlander left the scene following the crash.

On K-57 this morning, Sgt. Tapao said the investigation has not yet been completed.
