Cause of Death: Blunt Force Injuries

RIP SEBASTIAN PEREDIA (September 17, 2006 – June 26, 2023)

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


Note that the medical examiner’s agency experienced a catastrophic failure during an “upgrade” of their systems in April and since then has been issuing incomplete and inaccurate information to the public. We cannot vouch for the information that government workers provide.

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.
