2 male juveniles injured in Beach Road car collision

Two male juveniles were injured during a collision of two vehicles along Beach Road in Garapan Tuesday night.

The two boys suffered minor lacerations and were taken to the Commonwealth Health Center.

The vehicles-a Jeep and a Toyota Tacoma-both had extensive damage to the front bumpers.

Saipan Tribune learned from police and witnesses that the two injured boys were in the bed of the Toyota Tacoma being driven by Wilma Amog.

One of the boys was Amog’s 14-year-old son. Sitting on the front passenger seat was her 6-year-old daughter.

The Jeep was being driven by Jack Hudak, owner of Thai House Restaurant.

The Tacoma was heading south when the Jeep being driven by Hudak suddenly encroached on the opposite lane and collided head on with the Tacoma.

Hudak said he was changing his vehicle’s radio station when the accident happened.

Hudak had just come from the former Price Costco and was on his way home when the accident happened around 7:50pm in front of a building previously occupied by St. Michael’s Ambulance.

When asked if he was intoxicated, the businessman said he has never drunk alcoholic beverages since 1990 and that he is, in fact, a regular speaker at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

When Saipan Tribune left the scene, police were still doing their investigation.

The road was wet but it was not raining when the collision occurred. The shoulder and the side portion of the northbound lane was flooded.
