Man dies in morning car crash in Santa Rita


A 37-year old unidentified man was discovered unconscious and unresponsive this morning after his vehicle ran off the roadway on Pale Ferdinand Way in Santa Rita.

According to Guam Police Department spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao, the man was transported to Naval Hospital where he was pronounced dead by attending doctors.

At the scene, PNC witnessed what appears to be a maroon Nissan Altima that collided with a shipping container. GPD was on scene shortly after the crash to conduct their investigation.

Road markings indicate that the vehicle ran off the roadway, narrowly missing a school bus stop. At this time, GPD says that they have yet to determine if alcohol, speed and/or drugs were a factor in the crash.
