Alexander Antonio Sebastiano, 20, was one of four people that were killed in the Friday-morning crash, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

A 20-year-old Poway man died after a head-on collision on state Route 67 Friday morning. Alexander Antonio Sebastiano died at the scene, according to the Medical Examiner’s Office.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Sebastiano was the driver of a Chevy Silverado that was traveling northbound at a high rate of speed. The truck travelled across the double-yellow line and into oncoming traffic, colliding with a Toyota Camry.

The driver and passenger in the Camry were also killed. According to the San Diego County Medical Examiner’s Office, the driver was a 78-year-old man and the passenger a 74-year-old female who were both wearing seatbelts. They were pronounced dead at the scene without medical intervention.

A 34-year-old man from San Diego riding in the Silverado was also killed.

A third vehicle was involved in the collision. A Ramona woman, 24-year-old Nicole Pinning, was driving a Toyota Corolla with a 5-year-old female passenger, according to the CHP. They were taken to a hospital with moderate injuries.

A third passenger in the Silverado survived, a female passenger in the rear of the truck. She was taken to a hospital with unknown internal injuries, according to the CHP.

This 20 year old man not only took his own life, but murdered these other people with his foolish choice. Rails may help, but selfish stupidity was the cause of this accident.

How can you make such an irresponsible comment, Missy? There is no evidence to support that he was drunk at the time of the wreck, or even that operator error was the cause. He could've had a heart attack or a sneezing fit or an epileptic seizure, for all we know. So maybe we shouldn't just go straight to calling him a murderer.

@Gauge - No one said he was drunk. He was however speeding and lost control. he made a choice that cost three other people their lives. He created victims. No nice way around it.

"At a high rate of speed". Guys, they are traveling on a high way. EVERYONE is going at a "high rate of speed" unless you'd call 50 miles an hour slow. That's just ridiculous to assume they're speeding, as the wording is not specific enough to denote they are traveling over the normally fast speed on the freeway. Of course it is tragic when anything like this happens, but there are so many assumptions going on right now, it's not even funny.

I never said that the young man was drunk. More than one witness has verified that the young man was speeding on a road that is not safe under the best of conditions. The conditions that morning were foggy and wet. The young man, through his stupid choices, murdered those other people. I stand by what I said.
