Guam – The man involved in a motorcycle crash over the weekend has died.

The Guam Police Department has confirmed that the man involved in a motorcycle crash on Sunday, only identified as being in his 30s has died.

According to Guam Police Department Spokesperson Sgt. Paul Tapao, the crash remains under investigation.

The crash resulted in the closure of Route 2 for several hours as GPD conducted their investigation.

Preliminary reports indicate that the motorcyclist was traveling south on Route 2 by Chalan Lanchero, Agat, when he lost control of the motorcycle and encroached onto the northbound lane before running off into a ditch.

CPR was conducted en route to Naval Hospital but efforts to save his life were not successful. Tapao says that the man was pronounced dead by NRMC attending physicians shortly after 3 a.m. on Sunday.
