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.

Mary P, Entitlement- (1) The right to receive, demand or do something (Webster’s Dictionary Definition). Layman Definition – I have to drive. I need to work. I need to visit my friends. I am more important than anybody else. Facts – 7 prior collision, at-fault accidents due to a seizure condition and the combination of medication- prescribed and non-prescribed; medical condition that prohibits the safe operation of a motor vehicle; a permanent driver license suspension in June 2011 issued by the California Department of Motor Vehicles; countless court orders prohibiting driving; 2 dead fathers and others seriously injured. Consequences - Three young girls have to find someone else to walk them down the isle the day of their wedding and two young boys will have to find someone else to play catch with or teach them how to drive. “Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days (more like 25 to life): be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” R.I.P. Baldo and Nucco EAG

Hilarious. Interesting that Mr Black won't waste any more of "his" time, but there are no previous comments from Mr Black. Gee, could this be Mary P in disguise or a friend of Mary'si? I think even Inspector Clueso could have figured this one out. Good one, it almost slipped by all of us.... um, NOT. So, Mr Black you can join Mary P and PISS OFF. I think tomorrow should be NATIONAL I HATE MARY P DAY.

I actually did not know the victims, but I know alot of people who did know them, and any of their friends are really good people. I am sorry that this happened, and I think that the idiot who caused this has already been flagged as guilty due to a crooked past. I am sure he will pay and certainly deserves the ultimate form of prosecution as necessary. From what it sounds like, the criminal we are dealing with has no sense of humanity or remorse. My condolences to your family Hugo.
laura August 10, 2012 at 05:38 AM
Out of no where, ONE person agrees with Mary P. Good job making a new email address and setting up a new account Mary. You are so gosh darn clever. PISS OFF.
Melissa B. August 10, 2012 at 05:48 AM
Oh Miss Mary P....where to begin?! You are a perfect example of why people hate Christianity. You think that you hold Jesus in your pocket so you can do/say whatever you want, because "I believe in the Lord, so I'm already saved." Shame on you for posting the comments you've made on this board. You are entitled to your opinion, now matter how ignorant or narrow-minded it may be, but to post the comments that you've posted on this board is completely out of line and inappropriate...i mean really Mary, would Jesus have said these things? Think about it...go on, I'll wait...I was born and raised in San Bruno, and even though I didn't know these two men personally, it is evident that they were two beautiful men with hearts of gold who had wives and children and family and friends who are all mourning their 100 precent preventable loss! This man clearly knew he shouldn't have been driving, and he deserves to rot for it. You may think differently, that's your right, but keep it to yourself! The family and friends of these men don't deserve to read the things you've said! Don't you think they've been through enough already! Unless you are mentally challenged, which I assume you're not since you're correcting everyone's spelling, you should know better than to post the comments you've made! This is not the place to ask their loved ones to question whether or not they've put someone else in danger. Why don't you pray on it. For everyone else, I am so so very sorry for your loss!
Stephanie August 10, 2012 at 06:14 AM
Mary P- Go F yourself! Yeah I thought about being more suttle with the words I chose for you, but shortly after I thought to respond to you in some kind of cordial matter I reminded myself of the disregard you had for my friends family, who consequently are victims of this TRAGEDY! If you are a victim of some kind of tragedy and you think that must automatically give you the right to preach to these victims families, then you (1) learned NOTHING As a result and (2) should know more than anyone that these families are suffering, mourning, grieving, and the LAST thing they should be told at this moment is how they should feel or that they should reflect on mistakes made in their lives. Shame on you!!! Any person with have a mind knows that this man should be punished for the decision he made that took these amazing men from their amazing families. Fathers, husbands, brothers, sons, friends and Good men were taken from this world two weeks ago and there is not one thing okay with this. Standing at the service for these men was almost unbearable watching the tears and hurt pour out of their loved ones. My stomach turned as I read this article, and reading what Mary P. had to say makes me just sick! You do not have a place here! Your life and tragedy did not happen to you in order for you to see the light and shine it for others to see Bc clearly the light was taken from these families thanks to the selfishness of one man!!
Mary P August 10, 2012 at 07:57 AM
You are all so funny.. Ya like I would go to the extent of making up a fictitious name to defend my words. What a joke. Ya that was me alright and I am also Santa Clause and the Easter Bunny too. If any of you had half a brain you could see that Mr. Black has comments on other articles on this website. Where in this blog have I ever said theat the man who caused this accident does not deserve what he gets? This proves that all you want to do is listen to yourselves bitch. The man was in the wrong clearly. My point was and will be that EVERYONE (even the two men who lost thier lives) makes bad decisions. Mine today was trying ti talk some sense I to some hate mongers like you all. And now more than ever I will speak my mind because I can. Go ahead and spew your filthy comments they don't hurt me in the least , they actually confirm my opinion of the stupidity that runs so deep in our small community.
Charity August 10, 2012 at 10:41 AM
Enough Mary. Ok. Enough! For Christ sake, I don't know what you're getting out of antagonizing people in mourning but that is ENOUGH. Give it a damn rest.

Ps. I'm awake because I just had a baby and I'm breastfeeding.
Mike August 10, 2012 at 02:28 PM
Mary P First, this isn't a mistake or simple incident where someone shouldn't have been driving. This is an individual with a chronic history of driving when he shouldn't, getting into multiple accidents, injuring others in the past, and someone who knowing his past history and the high possibility of causing another crash, disregarded the safety of others for his own selfishness. This is why he is being charged for murder. Not quite the same as "driving when you shouldn't" as you mentioned. Second, I'm not sure what your initial intention of posting is,but the proper time to give someone advice on not to judge someone, etc who has just killed their loved one is certainly not immediately after the incident while people are in the midst of grief, anger, and rage. It serves no purpose but to inflame the situation as is obvious by the comments directed towards you. Discussion and reflection of how someone "should" act whether its judging someone else, etc should perhaps be saved for a later date after some wounds have healed, if at all. You may be well meaning but your timing is highly inappropriate. On the other hand, you may be a person who wants to take a position of superiority due to your own feelings of inadequcies and the web is your only way to feel powerful. I'm leaning towards the latter due to your continual back and forth barbs with others because if you really cared, you wouldn't continue this. Sad for you.
Holly August 10, 2012 at 02:29 PM
I believe Saint Roberts is planning a friends and family dinner to raise money for the families also ! I will keep you posted with what we hear !
Mrs. G August 10, 2012 at 02:39 PM
Debating with someone on a topic such as this with someone who has not been directly impacted is rather like trying to play chess with a pigeon; it knocks the pieces over, craps on the board, and flies back to its flock to claim victory. My advice is that you all ignore the pigeon who in this case would be Mary P. My condolences go to all of you suffering through this tragedy. -V
Chris Kiely August 10, 2012 at 02:47 PM
Mary P.: Please stop. You don't know what you are talking about. You are telling people to look into themselves and examine their own conscience. I suggest you do the same. Look at your first post. People are suffering from overwhelming grief, yet you decide to tell them they shouldn't "jump to blame". I looked back at all the posts in all the other threads since this tragedy, and I didn't see anyone rushing to judge. I saw people who were hurting, wanting to know what happened. Why are you shocked at the response you are getting? Look at your own words. Did you say "This made me think about the times I drove unsafely, I'll never do it again."? NO, you didn't. Did you say "I hope we all remember from now on not to drink and drive"? NO, you didn't. If you had, no one would have argued with you. Instead, you told people that they have all done bad things, so they shouldn't blame this guy. Wrong words, wrong time & place. Stop burying yourself. Go post about street sweeping or soda taxes.
Amy Barber Silva August 10, 2012 at 03:46 PM
Thank you Mrs. G, Mike, Chris and others. I think it is time that we all stop giving this piece of garbage the sick and twisted pleasure she is deriving from our pain! Cowards who hide behind their computer screens and made up names are simply not worth our time...
John black August 10, 2012 at 04:43 PM
I hate to disapoint all of you but I am a real person. John is my name but Black is not my last name. Really people.....lay off will you. This person Mary P who ever that is and you all are ASSuming that this person is a woman, NEVER said this person (killer) as you call him was in the right. I get the grieving thing and maybe Mary P. you should not have been so quick with your comments but geeeze people "hate Mary P. day"? we all have the right to comment in this country weather you like it or not and I for one will defend anyone's rights to their opinion until they take that away too, weather I agree or not. I am sorry for your loss and if you actually read the comments from this Mary person, he or she or they are too.
Melissa B. August 10, 2012 at 05:35 PM
Mary P. aka John Black...nice try, the only one your convincing is yourself. Get a life and please and leave these people alone. You have no place here. I really do feel sorry for you that you are so pathetic. Also, just a tip, when you are trying to pretend to be two people, change your wording to at least make it somewhat believable.
Mike August 10, 2012 at 06:21 PM
Hey everyone. I had to go back and read the whole thread. "Mary P" did a good job of trolling you all. It's fairly obvious by the sacrasm that the whole thing was a setup from the begining to upset you. Some people get off on it. I would suggest contacting the editor or webmaster to possibly have her IP address banned so she can't post anymore.
Mike August 10, 2012 at 06:23 PM
Hey everyone it's pretty obvious "Mary P" is a troll and she set you guys up from the begining. Subtly at first, you bit, and she reeled you all in for her own entertainment. All her added sarcastic remarks make it clear. I suggest contacting the Patch webmatser or editor and see if they can ban her IP address and she will not be able to post here anymore.
MAG (wife) August 11, 2012 at 03:06 AM

To "b" No problem. It's amazing that this person cannot see that everyone on this page is disagreeing and asking her to leave. Still, NEVER, has stated how she knows the victims, even though she was asked several times. Kept going with her rant even though one of the wives begged her to stop, which is strange, considering she knows the victims. You'd think she would want to accommodate a grieving wife and family. No respect there, at all. None for the victims, none for the families. True Bruno people take care of each other and protect each other from evil. I'm Bruno through and through. Mary P, you may have a San Bruno residence, but you are not BRUNO. So, for the last time... PISS OFF MARY P. I see you have now moved on to the other articles. For the love of Pete, find a hobby, find another tragedy to insert yourself into. The families of your alledged acquaintances, Arnulfo and Baldo, do not want to see your writings anymore, whether under your name, or another fictitious one. To MAG, my sincere condolences to yourself and your children, Julee and her children.

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!
