A San Bruno man accused of knowingly driving on a suspended license with a seizure disorder today pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder in connection with a fatal crash, according to prosecutors. Rodney Corsiglia, 49, was driving east on Sneath Lane on July 28th at 40 to 50 mph when he apparently suffered a seizure and crashed into several other cars stopped at a traffic light at El Camino Real, according to prosecutors. The crash killed two cousins in one vehicle — Arnulfo Picazo, 39, of San Bruno, and Usbaldo Picazo Gomez, 37, of South San Francisco. Both were pronounced dead at the scene.

Two other people were hospitalized with injuries that were not life-threatening, police said. Corsiglia was charged with two counts of second-degree murder in connection with the crash after investigators learned that his license had been suspended due to repeated accidents caused by a his seizure disorder, prosecutors said. He had been involved in more than half a dozen seizure-induced crashes between 2007 and 2011, according to the district attorney’s office. Corsiglia’s driver’s license was permanently revoked in June 2011. Corsiglia was driving on a suspended license at the time of the fatal crash. Corsiglia is being held in San Mateo County jail without bail. He was ordered today to return to court on Oct. 5 to set a preliminary hearing date.
