Guam – The driver in Wednesday’s fatal three car pile up has been identified.
Cindy Hansen, Guam Regional Medical City spokesperson confirmed that 20-year old Ernie Orot was brought to the hospital and pronounced dead on arrival following the reported accident in Yigo, Wednesday.
Orot was the driver and sole occupant of one of the vehicles involved in the crash which occurred around 4:00 pm yesterday on Route 1 Marine Corps drive by the Bank of Guam in Yigo.
The crash was so severe that firefighters needed to use the Jaws of Life to extricate Orot from his vehicle. The occupants of the other vehicles involved in the crash received minor injuries and were treated at the scene.
The Guam Police Department’s Highway Patrol Division is conducting a fatal crash investigation and have yet to release details on whether speed drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash.
Meanwhile police continue to seek the community’s help in identifying the fatal crash victim from Tuesday’s Agat accident.
