The man involved in the motorcycle crash last night has been identified.

Naval Hospital Public Information Officer Jaciyn Matanane confirmed that 32-year-old Leroy Leon Guerrero was brought to Naval Hospital last night and pronounced deceased by attending physicians.

The fatal crash was reported at around 9 in the evening on Monday in Maite, across the Government of Guam Retirement Fund office and First Hawaiian Bank, Route 8, Purple Heart Memorial Highway.

Last night, PNC was on the scene, seeing the motorcycle operated by Leon Guerrero on the curb of the eastbound sidewalk. Debris from the motorcycle was seen strewn along the road leading up to the motorcycle.

PNC also witnessed that road conditions were wet at the time of the crash. However, it has not been determined if factors such as speed, alcohol or drugs contributed to the crash.

According to GPD spokesman Sgt. Paul Tapao, crash investigators returned to the site of the crash this morning, closing off eastbound lanes to allow authorities to measure and map the scene as part of their investigation into what contributed to the crash.

This marks the 14th traffic fatality of the year.
