SAN BRUNO (CBS/AP) – A seizure-prone driver with a suspended license is facing murder charges for allegedly causing a double-fatal crash in San Bruno while he was having a seizure.

Rodney Corsiglia has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder for causing the July 28 crash that killed two cousins: 37-year-old Usbaldo Gomez and 39-year-old Arnulfo Picazo. Two others were seriously injured in the chain-reaction collision.

The 49-year-old retired custodian appeared in court but didn’t enter a plea Thursday. He’s being held without bail.

Prosecutors say Corsiglia knew he was a danger to the road but insisted on driving without a license. They say he caused seven seizure-related crashes between 2002 and 2011, when his license was permanently suspended.

Corsiglia’s attorney did not immediately respond to a request for comment Friday.
