A WOMAN died from injuries she sustained in an auto-motorcycle collision late yesterday afternoon near the 76 gas station in Agat along Route 2.
This marks the 6th traffic-related fatality for this year.
Police arrested a 43-year-old man last night in connection with the collision. Endy T. Timoti was charged with DUI, vehicular homicide, driving without a license, and driving other than right side. He was booked and confined.
According to the Guam Police Department, the woman was in her 40s. Her identity is being withheld pending notification of kin and further investigation.
According to Lt. William Knight, Navy spokesman, the woman died shortly after arriving at the emergency room at Naval Hospital in Agaña Heights.
The incident was reported at around 5 p.m. The female was riding the motorcycle when she apparently collided with a Toyota Matrix and got pinned underneath the vehicle.
She was extracted by Guam Fire Department personnel, then taken to Naval Hospital while CPR was being performed on her.
The case is now under investigation by GPD’s Highway Patrol Division.
The area was blocked off and motorists were re-routed so officers could conduct their investigation.
Witnesses at the scene said the roads were wet at the time of the collision. Highway Patrol will also be looking into this as well.
An autopsy on the woman is expected to be conducted today by Chief Medical Examiner Dr. Aurelio Espinola to determine the exact cause of death.
