Formal pronouncement of death was made on Monday at 4:30 a.m.

The decedent was among FIVE people killed in an early-morning crash on the 710 Freeway.

The single-vehicle crash was reported at 4:12 a.m. on the northbound 710 at the transition to the southbound 91 Freeway.

The black Hyundai Sonata crashed into a buffer on the 710 Freeway in Long Beach and burst into flames, according to the California Highway Patrol. A sixth person in the car was taken to a hospital with major injuries.

Apparently, there were six people in a car that could only seat five, so not everyone was wearing a seatbelt.
