Guam – A total of six people were sent to the hospital following two separate car accidents over the weekend.

 

According to Guam Fire Department Spokesperson Kevin Reilly, just after 4 am on Sunday morning, GFD units responded to two serious motor vehicle crashes. One incident took place across Ypaopao Estates in Dededo and the other accident was located across G Mart in Yigo. Reilly says both accidents were head on collisions. 

“At the Dededo scene, there were three patients that were treated. It was a head on collision. One patient had to be extricated using the jaws of life by our rescue units. In Yigo, it was a head on collision with one auto turn. One vehicle rolled over but landed right-side up so the patients. At that scene, all three patients were also taken to the hospital,” Reilly says.

According to GMH Spokeswoman June Perez, the six male car accident patients arrived at GMH Sunday morning. Two brothers ages 21 and 23 remain at GMH with the 23 year old on life support. All others were discharged Sunday.
