An investigation into last Saturday’s traffic fatality continues. The female driver of a 1999 Ford Taurus and her passenger, also female, were heading south on Route 3 at around 4:59 a.m. when the driver reportedly lost control of the vehicle, crossed the northbound lanes, and collided into a concrete pole.
The passenger was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver was treated for minor injuries at Guam Memorial Hospital and released.
Dr. Aurelio Espinola, Chief Medical Examiner, performed an autopsy on the passenger and said the woman died from skull fractures and whip lash.
Alcohol and/or speed as well as road conditions are being looked into to determine the cause of the crash.
