Police Arrest Driver Involved in Fatal Crash

The driver of the truck that caused the fatal accident had a negligent driving record and was driving on a suspended license, police said.

Police today arrested a 49-year-old man in connection with the that left two cousins dead and four others injured.

Investigators found that Rodney Corsiglia, a San Bruno resident, had a negligent driving record and was driving on a suspended license when he rear-ended Arnulfo Picazo and Usbaldo Gomez, who were stopped at a light at Sneath Lane and El Camino Real. Corsiglia also struck two other vehicles that were stopped at the intersection. 

, who had just left the baptism of Gomez's 1-year-old daughter at St. Bruno's Church, were pronounced dead at the scene, while four people, including at least two children, in the other two cars were sent to a local hospital.

"Investigators believe that Corsiglia continued to operate a motor vehicle, knowing his condition impaired his ability to drive safely," San Bruno police Lt. Geoff Caldwell said in a statement.

Shortly after the crash, which happened at about 12:16 p.m. on a Saturday at a busy intersection, police began investigating whether drunk driving was involved in the accident, and that factor still hasn't been determined because the investigation is ongoing.

But investigators revealed that Corsiglia's license had been suspended due to medical reasons. Police are now awaiting toxicology reports to determine what impairment led Corsiglia to cause the collision.

Corsiglia has been booked into San Mateo County Jail and faces charges including homicide, vehicular manslaughter and driving under the influence causing injury and death.

The injuries of the other people Corsiglia struck are still unknown.

I. Along with my son, daughter in law, 5 year old granddaughter and 11 year old grandson were sitting at the red light at the intersection of El Camino and Sneath Lane going northbound. Our light just turned green and as we proceeded across - car parts and flying baseballs, shoes, and baseball bats were flying all around us...when the dust settled - there was a small car in the middle of Sneath Lanes intersection cut in half - with the arm o the driver hanging out. My family was in so much shock! My son jumped out in the middle of the road to help the other truck - a father was trying to release his son who was pinned up behind his fathers drivers seat... Police and ambulance came quickly....my son noticed the driver o the truck who caused this walked around - with no remorse - no emotion to the wreckage he just caused...many of us were saddened - the driver in the small car never moved. My son started yelling 'murderer!' and yelling to the police that they needed to arrest that man for murder...I had to take my family away from the scene....we felt as if we just witnessed losing a family member.. We pray for comfort and peace for the families of these men. We pray for justice! To this day - I am Traumatized to have my family on the road. God bless these men! With all due respect to the families!
